JOHANNESBURG - State capture commission chair Raymond Zondo will know on Thursday whether or not he'll be able to pressure former president Jacob Zuma to answer his questions.

The Constitutional Court will rule on the matter.

The Zondo Commission lodged an urgent application to force Zuma to appear and answer questions.

This after the former president and his legal team walked out of the inquiry when Zondo refused to recuse himself as chairperson.

More than thirty witnesses have implicated Zuma at the commission.

This is probably why Zondo argues it might help if Zuma came to tell his side of the story.

Zuma did not participate in the case, but the commission's lawyers contend he should pay the costs.

They say his walkout demonstrates the general disdain with which he's been treating the legal system.
