JOHANNESBURG - The Democratic Alliance (DA) is warning that if President Jacob Zuma is granted immunity from prosecution, it will take legal action.

"I  think it’s important that South Africans are taken into the confidence of the ANC about what the terms of the deal are. If it’s a go in peace with ... immunity from prosecution, if that has been the terms of the deal, we as the DA will be the first to approach the courts," says John Steenhuisen, the DA chief whip.
