Screen grab of Jacob Zuma in court on 06 April 2018.

Former South African president Jacob Zuma has lost his appeal against a ruling that said he should pay the costs of reviewing Thuli Madonsela’s remedial action for the institution of the state capture inquiry.

Democratic Alliance (DA)’s James Selfe confirmed to News24 on Friday that a full bench of the North Gauteng High Court issued the correspondence on Friday.

Selfe said they received correspondence of the decision, and would receive the full papers later on Friday.

Zuma was also refused leave to appeal. He will pay in his personal capacity.

In December 2017, Zuma filed an application for leave to appeal the ruling ordering him to set up a commission of inquiry into state capture.

Zuma was appealing specifically that he be held personally responsible for the legal costs.
