Pres. Zuma has refused to give the DA documents, including the so-called intelligence report, on which he allegedly based his decision to fire former Minister of Finance, Pravin Gordhan and his deputy, Mcebisi Jonas.

The opposition party will next week turn to the High Court in Pretoria in a bid to compel Zuma to urgently hand over to it these documents.

The DA says it needs these documents to prepare for its main application against Zuma.

The DA is asking that Zuma’s decision to axe Gordhan and Jonas, be declared unlawful and invalid. It is also asking that the decision to replace Gordhan with Malusi Gigaba, be overturned.
