South African investigator questions Zuma for last time

"If the report finds serious wrongdoing by the president, it will be extremely damaging and will embolden his opponents inside and outside the ruling party", said Prince Mashele, analyst at the Centre for Politics and Research. Zuma appointed Mkhwebane as the new public protector for a seven-year term, with effect from October 15.

The probe is viewed by African National Congress leaders critical of Zuma as a last-ditch attempt to rein him in and neutralize the influence of the Gupta family after an ANC attempt to investigate the same thing failed dismally.
