Former South African President Jacob Zuma says he has been vilified

PARIS, France – Former South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma on Monday told a corruption inquiry that he has been vilified.

There is a conspiracy and his enemies had created an all-out “character assassination” against him, because they wanted him to step down, Zuma said.

“This commission, from my understanding, was really created to have me coming here, and perhaps to find things on me,” Zuma said when testifying at the state capture commission.

Zuma, who has been implicated in repeated corruption scandals, has repeatedly denied wrongdoing.  He also accused the board of inquiry of targeting him, trying to ambush and humiliate him for what he termed as “political” reasons.
