Malema trashes state capture report, says Chief Justice Zondo is partisan

Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has accused Chief Justice Raymond Zondo of engaging in partisan politics in the African National Congress (ANC).

JOHANNESBURG — Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has accused Chief Justice Raymond Zondo of engaging in partisan politics in the African National Congress (ANC).

Malema addressed the media at the party headquarters in Johannesburg on Monday.

EFF leader says his organization has no interest in implicating Zondo’s report in state capture as it was part of President Cyril Ramaphosa’s campaign for re-election as ANC president.

“For the EFF, the report of the Zondo Commission is not exciting because Zondo used the Commission to promote the interests of a certain faction against the other faction and thus, the whole process delegitimized; 2 billion rand to fight faction battles,” Malema charged.

Zondo has been praised for exposing the extent of corruption resulting from the conquest of the state under the administration of former President Jacob Zuma.

However, for Malema, there is nothing to celebrate about the ‘compromised’ Chief Justice.

Malema also threw support for ANC NEC member Tony Yengeni’s request for the Judicial Service Commission to investigate Zondo.

Yengeni alleged that Zondo violated the code of conduct for justice when he made certain findings in his state arrest report.

The convicted fraudster has since asked the JSC to sanction the Chief Justice.
