Jacob Zuma suffers double court blow

South African President Jacob Zuma has lost two court cases in one day, both linked to corruption allegations.

Pretoria’s High Court ordered Mr Zuma to set up a judicial inquiry, calling him “seriously reckless” for challenging recommendations by a watchdog in a case against him.
In the second case, a judge ruled he had abused the judicial process by trying to block a report on corruption, ordering him to pay legal fees.
Mr Zuma quits as ANC leader next week. In his 10-year term he has been dogged by allegations of corruption, all of which he denies.
In the first ruling, the court gave Mr Zuma 30 days to appoint an inquiry into allegations of corruption against him and his associates.
