On Monday Zuma maintained his defiance and that of his family members against his appearing before the state capture inquiry, saying the latest summons compelling him to appear is irregular.
Through his legal team, Zuma again said he would not appear before the inquiry chaired by deputy chief justice Raymond Zondo.
This despite a formal notice from the commission stating that he was expected to appear at 10am.
During resumption of the commission on Monday, Zondo said Zuma’s grounds for his continued defiance of the state capture inquiry had no merit whatsoever.
The ANC in KwaZulu-Natal said it was hoping to engage with Zuma to try to find an amicable solution.
