Former president Jacob Zuma has told the chair of the commission of inquiry into state capture, Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, about a threat to his children, senior counsel advocate Muzi Sikhakhane, and his own life.
Zuma addressed the new threats on Tuesday morning before continuing with his testimony. He told the commission his PA got a call on Monday night to say “Tell Zuma we are doing to kill him, his children, and people around him”. He said his senior counsel was also threatened.
On Monday, Zuma told Zondo about threats to his life, one plan involving suicide bombers who were meant to carry out the plan of ending Zuma’s life during a Maskandi festival in Durban some time this year.
Zondo urged law enforcement agencies to investigate the threats against Zuma, his family, and his legal representation.
