Political and academic commentators from across the political spectrum yesterday described the judgment by Judge Chris Nicholson in the application to have the decision to prosecute Jacob Zuma declared invalid as a “shocking indictment” on Mbeki and his cabinet, saying they should take full responsibility for the debacle.

“It has been made clear now that there has been political interference in the Zuma case and that Zuma should have been charged long ago with Mr [Schabir] Shaik. There will be serious political repurcussions,” De Vos said.
