It would be wise for President Jacob Zuma to refer to the Information Bill to the Constitutional Court for certification, says Motlanthe

Deputy President, Kgalema Motlanthe, says it would be wise for President Jacob Zuma to refer the controversial Protection of State Information Bill to the Constitutional Court for certification.

Motlanthe is being quoted as saying that, "We would not hesitate to say to the president 'send it to the Constitutional Court for certification before assenting to it'.”

The Bill has sparked two years of sustained protest and has resulted in media houses, activists and the Congress of South African Trade Unions threatening to challenge it in the Constitutional Court.
