Thuli Madonsela has weighed in on President Zuma's court application, questioning the ethics of those involved in the case.
"We are in court on an issue of process this time. Last time we were in court on the issue of our powers. But is it in an issue of process, or is it an issue of those who are entrusted with public power?What are their ethical responsibilities?" she said during an inaugural Good Governance lecture ni Pretoria on Tuesday.
