JOHANNESBURG - It seems Jacob Zuma's legal woes keep mounting.

The Presidency has withdrawn an appeal against the Public Protector's State of Capture Report.

The North Gauteng High Court had ordered Zuma to personally foot the bill for trying to have the report set aside and reviewed.

While he was president, Zuma appealed that ruling.

But President Cyril Ramaphosa has withdrawn that appeal, meaning Zuma will have to pay millions out of his own pocket.

Zuma appeared in the KwaZulu-Natal High Court on corruption charges on Friday.

The state is providing legal funding for that challenge.
