Jacob Zuma was in parliament answering questions for the first time since June and, yes, you guessed it, it was a showdown.
Zuma was on his usual defensive behavior, dodging questions and giving blunt, short answers.
When Zuma was asked about state capture and his son’s relationship with the Guptas, the opposition went all out.
Malema was incandescent towards Zuma and asked a rather logical question: If the state capture allegations aren’t true – and have caused substantial damage to the president’s image – why has he not taken legal action:
“There is an allegation of State capture – YOU are right at the centre of it, but you take no legal action against us. You do no tell me to withdraw my comments about State Capture.
People say have a house in Dubai. You say nothing… People say you work with the Guptas, you say nothing! Why don’t you take action? Just to protect the image of the office.
You can take me to court over this! You can take action against me!”
