Mbeki accused of hypocrisy over Zuma

President Thabo Mbeki was on Friday accused of double standards after he said he would not interfere with any prosecution for corruption of Jacob Zuma, who defeated the president in the race for the leadership of the African National Congress (ANC) this week.

Mbeki was speaking at his official residence in Pretoria a day after the closing of the ANC's national conference in Polokwane that brought Zuma's election victory.

Zuma's supporters said the president's seemingly high-minded approach was a double standard because he had stalled other investigations and prosecutions of his allies.

On Thursday, acting national director of public prosecutions Mokotedi Mpshe said his office was preparing to charge Zuma with accepting bribes from a French arms company and for tax evasion. Last week, it submitted an affidavit to the Constitutional Court alleging that Zuma took illegal payments totalling R4-million over 10 years.

"All of us in the ANC have insisted, and that includes Jacob Zuma, that the law must take its course," said Mbeki. "The entirety of the ANC would accept that to the extent that the law-enforcement authorities, the National Prosecuting Authority, have a case against anybody they should proceed in that regard. I don't know what the National Prosecuting Authority intend to do; they haven't said anything to me."
