WATCH: Zuma's state capture court bid in quotes

President Jacob Zuma has challenged the former Public Protector's recommendation, compelling him to appoint a commission of inquiry into state capture.

Zuma says he'll establish the inquiry within 30 days once Thuli Madonsela's State of Capture report is set aside.

That report implicates the Guptas in allegations of state capture, with President Zuma a central figure.

Zuma has also accused of violating the Executive Members Ethics Code by failing to investigate the claims.
