Jacob Zuma will submit an appeal in Bloemfontein that the appointment of the Zondo Commission on State Creation Investigation was unconstitutional.
That’s because at the time, as president, he could not appoint the chairman of the commission himself, Zuma claims.
Madonsela’s suggestion was that the chief justice should appoint the chairperson because Zuma himself was implicated in the report.
Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng then appointed Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo.
The former president’s case is expected to be heard on March 26.
A full bench of judges, chaired by Gauteng judge President Dunstan Mlambo, denied Zuma leave to appeal in December 2017 in the Pretoria High Court.
The Court of Appeal has now granted him permission to do so.
Eyewitness News earlier reported that Zuma “will be fit as ever for May 6 cour appearance”.
