Johannesburg - All eyes will this week be on the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into State Capture as it prepares to hear the high-anticipated testimony of former president Jacob Zuma.
Zuma will appear before the commission between July 15 - July 19 where he is expected to give his testimony and respond to damning allegations of impropriety and malfeasance.
While South Africa waits with bated breath for the former president to finally have his day, a relaxed Zuma took to social media to mock his detractors a day ahead of his appearance.
Zuma's reluctant appearance before the commission, headed by Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, comes after months of giving the commission the runaround regarding his willingness to testify.
The commission wrote to Zuma's lawyers back in April 2019, asking them to furnish it with a written undertaking that the client will appear on the given dates.
Zuma, instead of responding to the commission's request, then insisted that he be furnished in advance with the questions that he will be asked on the witness stand before he can consider whether to give the required undertaking.
