The latest: Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has responded to former president Jacob Zuma's claims that he should recuse himself from the state capture commission of inquiry, on the basis that he believes Zondo is biased.

Family relations: In a letter to the commission, dated 28 September, the former president, via his legal team, said one of the reasons why Zuma wanted Zondo to recuse himself was that they had historical family relations.

In quotes: "That Mr Zuma happened to marry the sister of a woman with whom I had had a relationship that had ended so many years before that marriage, has never had any bearing on the execution of my judicial functions in the many matters involving Mr Zuma in which I have sat as a justice of the Constitutional Court since 2012, nor does it have any bearing on the execution of my duties as chairperson of the commission," Zondo said.
