Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma’s leave to appeal the North Gauteng High Court ruling that Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa should appoint a new National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP) proves that he remains in charge, the DA said on Saturday.

In a statement, DA MP Glynnis Breytenbach said that Zuma's actions show that very little has changed since the December ANC elective congress.

"It shows that the ANC has not self-corrected and that Zuma is still trying to run away from the law at the taxpayers’ expense. Zuma is certainly no stranger to wasting public money.

"He did exactly this when, for example, he withdrew his court bid to interdict the release of the State of Capture report in 2016, dropped large parts of his review application of the same report in 2017, and then opposed the appointment of a judge to head the inquiry by the Chief Justice, only to give in in the end and allow Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng to make the appointment after all," she said.
