Minister Zwane seeks interdict to stall state capture report

Minister of Mineral Resources Mosebenzi Zwane has launched an application seeking an urgent interdict of the release of Advocate Thuli Madonsela's state capture report.

In a statement Zwane said he has no option but to get involved to the matter because he was not asked to answer allegations leveled against him.

Zwane joins Cogta Minister Des Van Rooyen who filed his application this morning saying there have been persistent press reports which contradict Madonsela's statement that he is not implicated in the report.

Tomorrow President Jacob Zuma appears in court after he asked for postponement of the release. Zuma said he was not given enough time to answer to questions from the Public Protector and interview witnesses.

Listen to EWN reporter Gia Nicolaides to hear more about the court case tomorrow...
