JZ wants another chance to explain
the opportunity to make fresh representations before the NPA decided whether to recharge him.
However, Justice Mahomed Navsa said those processes were not for the SCA to decide on.
DA federal executive chairman James Selfe said, given the weight of concessions made by Zuma and the NPA, it was inevitable that the president would face the corruption charges.
“What we are hoping the court will do is go ahead and give some clarity to the process that must now take place,” he said.
Selfe said there were “excellent grounds” to have Zuma pay for the matter out of his own pocket.
He said court proceedings over the past eight years had hit the public purse, possibly running to almost R30-million.
Justice Eric Leach questioned why Zuma had approached the court if he was ultimately agreeing with what the High Court had ruled.
Kemp said he wanted the court to set out the processes going forward.
Judgment was reserved.
