JOHANNESBURG - The Zondo Commission is to blame for the position it found itself in, according to Justice Chris Jafta, who ruled on the appearance of Jacob Zuma at the State Capture Inquiry.

Jafta says there is a public interest for Zuma to appear before the commission because he is at the centre of most of the allegations and investigations.
