Following court ruling that ordered Zuma to pay his legal fees and he said he is not financially fit, South Africans have advised him to declare himself bankrupt and then pay the money in peace meal.
Some say if he does that, he will be able to pay R100 per month.
“It is declared that the state is not liable for the legal costs incurred by Mr Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma in his personal capacity in criminal prosecutions instituted against him in any civil litigation related or incidental thereto and for any other associated legal costs,” EWN reported Judge Aubrey Ledwaba as saying.
The State Attorney’s office has also been ordered to compile a full and complete record of all of Zuma’s legal fees, and has also been ordered to use whatever means necessary to recover the funds from the former president.
Zuma told press men outside the court, “I can’t afford to pay the legal fees, I am unemployed”
