The African National Congress is starting its “dispute resolution process” in a bid to address the a.
The Congress of South African Students (Cosas) said the Supreme Court of Appeal's decision was expected, given the political climate within the ANC.
"We view this as an intensification of the existing illegal plan to criminalise the ANC deputy president before the Limpopo conference in December," said Cosas president Kenny Motshegoa.
He said the fact that there was no general consensus on the judgment by the panel of judges showed a lack of correctness in the processes of the law.
"To Cosas, the judgment was nothing but a response to the overwhelming majority of ANC branches which nominated Zuma for the presidency," he said.
He said Zuma remained innocent and Cosas would continue to support him "until death do us part". - Sapa
