South Africa: Zuma dismisses graft allegations [The Morning Call]

The Morning Call

Former South African President Jacob Zuma is crying foul over corruption allegations against him.

He has denied being the king of corruption during a hearing of the state capture inquiry commission on Monday.

According to him, he was a victim of a “character assassination” campaign by enemies seeking his removal from power. He even went further to reveal some of the names of those who were part of a plot to remove him from office.

Zuma has however on several occasions denied any wrongdoing and speaking for the first time before the commission, he seemed confident in his statements.
