JOHANNESBURG - Former president Jacob Zuma's lawyer has slammed the state capture commission for not providing his client with the information he required.
Muzi Sikhakhane was making opening remarks before Zuma's testimony at the state capture inquiry.
“An unfairness has happened in this commission where people have been blurbing names of people, connecting their own dots about people and those people have not been given notice in time.”

“And of course there is some injustice that Mr Zuma may endure today and that is why we were asking for specificities so that we could prepare him we could advise him to go to certain people and not mention names of people without you as the commission giving them notice, that was not appreciated by Mr [Peter] Peddler on your behalf because there was a believe that we were dueling a Stalingrad or a Zuma tactic as it's called,” said Sikhakhane.
Several inquiry witnesses have already implicated Zuma in their testimonies.
Sensational claims about how he allegedly helped loot government money have been made at the commission.
