BRAAMFONTEIN - The EFF wants President Jacob Zuma to withdraw his application to review the Public Protector's State of Capture report.

The report recommended that Zuma establish an inquiry into allegations of state capture.

Zuma wants the recommendation reviewed, with the matter scheduled to be heard in court in October.

At a press conference, EFF leader Julius Malema distributed a document alleging corruption at Transnet.

He says the graft amounts to as much as R10-billion.
