Should Zuma pay le­gal costs?

CityPress - - Voices -

Pumla Western Cape Yes, and all fu­ture cases brought by him to de­fend him­self, in­clud­ing all the cap­tured peo­ple. How do we pay when we are the ones robbed? J Nell Eastern Cape He should pay it per­son­ally. Maxwell KwaZulu-Natal Ja­cob Zuma started the whole court drama with his in­ter­dict ap­pli­ca­tion which brought in the op­po­si­tion par­ties. Yes, he must pay them. N McMaster KwaZulu-Natal How much more must the peo­ple of South Africa tol­er­ate from the en­tire ANC and its paid sup­port­ers? Ev­ery­one who is in gov­ern­ment/paid by gov­ern­ment has an ex­pectancy to sup­port the gov­ern­ment with our hard-earned tax money. Lack of com­pe­tence, skills and lead­er­ship to run the coun­try has be­come so ev­i­dent of late and the gov­ern­ing party’s true colours are clearly ev­i­dent. A fish rots from the head down. Lind­say Dou­glas KwaZulu-Natal Of course he should. All the ap­pli­ca­tions he has made South Africa pay for could have gone to the uni­ver­si­ties and schools. He re­ally doesn’t “ap­ply his mind” at all. Alan Bax­ter via SMS Yes, Zuma, who is not fit to be called pres­i­dent, must per­son­ally pay all le­gal costs. D de Kock North West Any state worker im­pli­cated in per­son of wrong­do­ing must pay all le­gal fees him­self. In any case, be it in a court of law or de­part­men­tal cases. So, if the state is not im­pli­cated, the above­men­tioned is ap­pli­ca­ble. Mnce­disi Kupso Gaut­eng Zuma must pay, to­gether with the ANC NEC, be­cause they are de­fend­ing cor­rup­tion. Kar­ryn Western Cape Zuma should be held per­son­ally ac­count­able for all le­gal fees he’s in­curred. We, the tax pay­ers, should not have to pay for his blun­ders, in­com­pe­tence, nepo­tism and cor­rup­tion. Zak Hen­ning Western Cape Of course Zuma should be or­dered to pay his own le­gal fees. Ev­ery­one else does. It was not the state that de­cided to in­ter­dict the re­port. It was not the state im­pli­cated in the re­port. It was him. If he wants to bring an is­sue be­fore the court, he should pay from his own pocket, just like ev­ery other per­son. Nt­shebe Mlambo KwaZulu-Natal The full Bench is in col­lu­sion with the op­po­si­tion par­ties to scam money. The Bench is cap­tured by the op­po­si­tion. The pres­i­dency didn’t in­vite the op­po­si­tion to join the court but those two black judges did al­low them, so they must pay them­selves be­cause they were not in­vited by the pres­i­dent in per­son. It is sim­ply a scam.
