The ANC’s former president, Jacob Zuma, agreed that some of his accusations against the chief state prosecutor would be scrapped from his statement because it could make his problems even bigger.

Chief prosecutor, Billy Downer, was described by Zuma as a liar driven by his sentiment to return to apartheid.

Zuma stated that the prosecutor had become nostalgic about apartheid and that he hated the former president, and was therefore negative against him and his court case.

With Downer’s threat that he would sue Zuma about the allegations that were unlawful, Zuma decided not to make any more trouble by saying everything could be removed.

The allegations made by Zuma and which can now be regarded as removed from his statement will not be taken into account by the judge in his final decision.
