STATE CAPTURE PROBE: ZUMA CANNOT APPEAL COST ORDER, COURT RULES

By African News Agency (ANA) | 2018-11-09

Cape Town - Former president Jacob Zuma has been denied leave to appeal a court ruling that ordered him to personally pay the court costs of his failed legal review of former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's directive that a judicial commission of inquiry be appointed to probe the state capture scandal.
"It means that the cost order stands," said James Selfe from the Democratic Alliance, one his opponents in the case.

The ruling was made by the high court in Pretoria on Friday and communicated to the parties.
Zuma had sought to take on review Madonsela's remedial action on the basis that, according to the Constitution, only the president had the discretion to appoint a judicial commission of inquiry and that he could not be directed by another organ of state as to how to exercise his power.
