South Africa's former president Jacob Zuma told a judicial inquiry Monday that he was innocent of any wrongdoing over his dealings with the Gupta family, allegedly at the heart of a web of corruption.

"I never did any... breaking the law with this family - never," he told the graft inquiry, making a defiant appearance after previous witnesses gave damning evidence against him.
