An application will be heard at the State Capture Commission this morning to issue a summons to former president Jacob Zuma.

His foundation is fighting back, issuing a statement accusing commission chairperson, Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, of playing politics.

The foundation was sent a communication on an application to subpoena Zuma.

The commission said in a statement on Thursday night that it will today hear an application brought by the commission's legal team "for an order authorising the Secretary of the Commission to issue a summons for Zuma".

Zuma first appeared before the commission in July last year. He subsequently missed previous dates to return.

In January Zondo said the state capture commission would make findings and recommendations regardless of whether Zuma appears before it to give his side of the story. However, Zondo said, it would be "preferable" to hear Zuma's testimony as he was head of state when state capture allegedly happened.
