Former president Jacob Zuma says President Cyril Ramaphosa should be concerned by the multimillion-rand personal costs order granted against him [Zuma] over his failed state capture inquiry court challenges – as it means SA's head of state can be held "personally liable" for his or her executive decisions.

In papers filed at the Constitutional Court, Zuma has again denied that he sought to review then Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's "State of Capture" report "because I wished ·to block investigations into corruption which implicated me".

Zuma says findings to this effect, made by a full bench of the Pretoria High Court, were based on "assumption" and were made "without any basis whatsoever".
