DA welcomes ruling confirming Zuma should pay his own legal fees

The DA has welcomed the ruling by the Supreme Court of Appeal confirming that former President Jacob Zuma should foot the bill for his personal legal costs and pay back money previously used in his defence.

It was the DA and the EFF who started the legal battle over the funding of Zuma’s legal matters with the parties arguing that it was unlawful.

They called on President Cyril Ramaphosa to cut the expenditure.
