The Jacob Zuma Foundation has released a statement regarding the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture. The former president's daughter, Duduzile Zuma-Sambudla shared an image of the statement to Twitter.

The statement accused Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo of 'abusing' his position by instructing his subordinates to 'bend the laws' of the country. The statement continued to speak on Zondo:

"He ignores process and jurisdictions as prescribed by the law just to ensure that the Zuma State Capture Commission of Inquiry finds President Zuma guilty by hook or crook to deliver him to some hidden masters."

The Foundation believes that laws are being changed to deal with the former president and made a comparison to the laws created by the Apartheid government to handle Robert Sobukwe.

Take a look at the statement below:

Below are some of the responses the statement received:

@AbutiJose said:

"Aye, those people who frequent Nkandla for tea aren't doing justice. Your father didn't only violate Commission Act three (3) times but he is also guilty of contempt of the Concourt order. So if you multiply 4 counts by six months you will get 2 years."

@PaulLesiba wrote:

"Your father made it clear he is not afraid of jail..."

@tendani1yahooc1 tweeted:

"So this Zuma Foundation is not aware that Jacob is no longer a president of RSA. There is only one president of RSA and his name is Matamela Cyril Ramaphosa."

@NtombiZ08789024 shared:

"It's so sad about Jacob Zuma, from the highest office in the land to speaking like a common criminal!"

Briefly.co.za previously reported that the Zondo Commission of Inquiry lodged an urgent appeal with the Constitutional Court requesting that former president Jacob Zuma be sentenced to two years in prison.

This follows Zuma's refusal to appear before the court resulting in the Commission making an urgent application to the Constitutional Court according to News24. Zuma refused to comply with three summonses that were issued by the court for him to appear according to the Mail and Guardian.

The former president's foundation then stated that it wants his corruption trial to be put to an end. The call from the Jacob G Zuma foundation comes after it claimed that the National Prosecuting Authority plans to postpone the arms deal matter to 17 May.

According to Times Live, the NPA stated that the trial was never meant to start on Tuesday, 23 February as the foundation had claimed, but that date was set for parties in the case to 'resolve outstanding pretrial management issues' before agreeing on a date for the trial and other matters.
