Former South African President Jacob Zuma has refused to make any submission about what sanction he should face for his alleged criminal contempt – and says he is “ready to become a prisoner of the Constitutional Court”. NEws24 reports that in a 21-page letter addressed to Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng, Zuma says the Constitutional Court’s directions that he provide evidence on his potential contempt punishment and possible prison term were “a sham and an attempt to sanitise the gravity of the repressive manner in which the Court has dealt with [his] issues”. He later added that he does “not accept that [he] committed contempt of court,” and that “it is clear for all to see that nothing can persuade the Constitutional Court not to incarcerate [him].”
