The story: The Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture will approach the Constitutional Court seeking an order that former President Jacob Zuma is in contempt of court.  

The details: And should the court find him guilty then, it should impose a prison sentence, said Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo on Monday.  

The background: Last year the commission laid a complaint with law enforcement agencies following Zuma's walk-out of the inquiry, in defiance of a summons issued against him. The secretary of the commission had also been instructed to lay a criminal complaint against Zuma for not appearing from 18 to 22 January 2021.
