Zuma's Cabinet reshuffle record appeal to be heard 

The High Court in Johannesburg will on Friday morning hear an appeal by President Jacob Zuma against a ruling that he must hand over records explaining his controversial Cabinet reshuffle.

The infamous late night reshuffle saw Pravin Gordhan axed as finance minister, along with his deputy Mcebisi Jonas, among others.

At the time, an intelligence report was alleged to have sparked the reshuffle and Zuma’s earlier request that Gordhan return from an investor roadshow abroad.

DA MP James Selfe said the deadline was at 16:00 on Thursday afternoon.

Zuma filed an application for leave to appeal the decision of the North Gauteng High Court on Wednesday evening.

ICYMI: 

Zuma wants to delay Cabinet reshuffle record – DA 

The Democratic Alliance says President Jacob Zuma wants to delay the legal process after he filed an application for leave to appeal the decision of the North Gauteng High Court, ordering him to submit the record and reasons of the decision to reshuffle.  

Judge Bashier Vally made the ruling in Pretoria on Thursday, after listening to arguments.

"The president is clearly hell-bent on keeping these reasons from the people of South Africa, and is using every possible court process to do so," spokesperson Mabine Seabe said.

Seabe said this court application was to frustrate and delay the legal process to review Zuma's disastrous Cabinet reshuffle and the firing of Pravin Gordhan and Mcebisi Jonas.
