He further referred to sworn claims by Ajay Gupta that he had an "alibi" for the time when he was alleged to have met with Jonas and could prove this alibi with "cellphone records".
"I therefore do not fear any conviction based on these allegations, as I am innocent of the alleged charges levelled against me, and I will stand my trial as soon as possible to prove it. I point out that this charge has already been under investigation since March 2016, and as far as I am aware, I was never regarded as a suspect in the matter up until 6 July 2018."
Zuma has made it clear that he knows he may face further "state capture" charges or be called to give evidence at the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture.
"I am returning to South Africa fully aware of the fact that there is a pending commission of enquiry on state capture at which I may have to give evidence and at which I may indeed wish to give evidence, if I am required to do so."
In his bail affidavit, Zuma has also accused the Hawks of unlawfully arresting him "without a warrant of arrest" when he arrived in South Africa from Dubai last week.
He was at pains to point out that he had agreed to hand himself over to the authorities following this allegedly unlawful arrest and had "cooperated fully" with the authorities.
According to Duduzane, this showed that he was not a flight risk and should be granted bail.
