Maughan says Zuma cites government cutting funding for his corruption trial defence legal bills shows there is a political motive against him in the country.

Maughan spoke to Bongani Bingwa about her interview with the former president.

Meeting him was fascinating. He no longer has the power that he had. Zuma faces legal costs of R30 million that he has to repay and he faces the prospect of the state capture inquiry, so he has a lot on his mind.
