The former public protector Thuli Madonsela has accused Duduzane Zuma of lying to the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture and trying to divert attention from the allegations levelled against him.

Yesterday he claimed he was never given an opportunity to respond to the allegations made against him by former deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas, contained in the Public Protector's State of Capture report.

Madonsela said Duduzane was given numerous opportunities to respond to the allegations before the report was released.

“He’s lying and I don’t know why,” said Madonsela.

“Those who are accusing me of making wrong decisions are wasting their time, because that is not within the mandate of the commission,” Madonsela said. “If anyone feels that I did anything unlawful or unjust they should take it to the courts for review."
