President Jacob Zuma has been ordered by the North Gauteng High Court to hand the Democratic Alliance (DA) all records related to the controversial Cabinet reshuffle.
The party approached the high court to ask for the record of decision as well as the intelligence report Zuma reportedly relied on.
Zuma told senior African National Congress (ANC) members prior to firing former minister Pravin Gordhan and Mcebisi Jonas that he’d obtained a report which alleged the pair were conspiring against him.
The documents he will be presenting are set to include the so-called 'intelligence report' which led to Gordhan's firing.
"This is a victory not only for the DA but for all South Africans who deserve to know on what basis the President made this disastrous decision", stated DA MP, James Selfe.
Judge Bashier Vally has ordered Zuma to handover numerous records within five working days
