Zuma sends stern warning to 'enemies'

Former president Jacob Zuma says he's been provoked for far too long.

JOHANNESBURG - Former president Jacob Zuma threatened enemies in the ANC on Friday after securing a concession on how he is questioned at the state capture inquiry.

"Some say this old man is angry," Zuma told hundreds of supporters after the inquiry was adjourned.

"All I’m saying is people must be very careful. When I say I will say things about them, I mean it."

Earlier this week, Zuma accused a close comrade of being a spy for the apartheid government and foreign intelligence services.

He said the ANC had been infiltrated by other spies.

Zuma will now be allowed to submit written statements to the inquiry on incidents where other witnesses have implicated him in wrongdoing, as opposed to being questioned by a legal team in public.

He will return to give evidence in public at a later stage, but it is not yet clear when.
