"On the perception from that is purely on the court of public opinion which is driven by a narrative that stems from media reports, allegations wherever they come from. I'm looked at as a criminal, face of corruption, this guy that has plundered trillions out of this country, which is not the case by the way. So I'd just like to say to the public out there I'm not corrupt, I'm not taking any money, I never have and I never will, just know its not me."

Zuma's also questioned why former Public Protectors did not wait for his testimony before releasing her report on state capture.
