ANC statement on e-TV News bulletin concerning ANC President Jacob Zuma
25 June 2008
The ANC reject with contempt e-tv`s attempt to distort the letter written by the lawyer of the President of the ANC, and we reject their notion that Mr Zuma would do anything other than exercising his right as a citizen to seek legal recourse through the democratic institutions.
We will protect the integrity and independence of the courts and the judiciary, including the Constitutional Court, which e-tv clearly does not have respect for.
The manner in which e-tv obtained a copy of the confidential letter and the obvious bias in the reporting of the e-tv news team as displayed on their channel today must be of concern to all mature and reasonable citizens of our country.
