Zuma's legal fees more than double the R15m cited by Ramaphosa

This comes as Malema said in Parliament that the EFF’s estimates were that legal fees spent defending Zuma amounted to R64-million – a figure Ramaphosa said he wasn’t aware of.

Former justice minister Brigitte Mabandla revealed that Zuma's legal team spent R9.6-million between September 2006 and July 2008 fighting‚ unsuccessfully‚ to overturn the search warrants used to raid the homes of Zuma and his lawyers.

Those raids resulted in the seizure of thousands of documents used to do an in-depth analysis of Zuma's financial affairs. This first batch of cases also involved the postponement of Zuma's criminal trial.

Mabandla's successor‚ Jeff Radebe‚ disclosed in Parliament that Zuma's lawyers had spent R7.3-million between April 2007 and 2009/2010 challenging the request for mutual legal assistance made by the National Prosecuting Authority to Mauritian authorities. That request for assistance related to several documents - including the so-called "encrypted fax" - that were crucial to the state's case that Zuma had taken a bribe from French arms company Thint.

The costs also relate to Zuma's successful application before Judge Chris Nicholson‚ who found that there was evidence suggesting that former president Thabo Mbeki had interfered in the Zuma prosecution.
