Former president Jacob Zuma’s supporters in KwaZulu-Natal have urged him not to appeal the state capture commission’s damning findings against him.

In its first report published by President Cyril Ramaphosa on Tuesday, the commission found that Zuma had collaborated with the private sector to capture the SA Revenue Services (SARS) and render it ineffective.
