28 Feb 16:12
The issue in this case is not about the matter of the Zuma prosecution. It is about the integrity of the NDPP and the attempt by Zuma to influence this issue.

Irrational to use state funds to pay someone their salary for the remainder of their contract as well as pension, Epstein says.

28 Feb 15:13

Nxasana was not party to the alleged seduction; he thought it was outside of Section 12, Le Roux says. 

28 Feb 14:29

Nxasana always intended to abide and put up an affidavit, once the full record was there, Le Roux says.

Le Roux says Nxasana wasn't served with papers. But filed within a week. Found papers online.

Perception is integral. Manner in which Shaun Abrahams had identified himself with Zuma was cause for concern. It became part of the enemy debate, HSF submits.

On whether to prosecute Zuma, who will be prosecutor? How will he be prosecuted? Those decisions should be made by someone in who public can have confidence.

Budlender says it is essential that decision to prosecute a former president is made by someone in which public can have full confidence.
