South Africa's North Gauteng High Court sitting in Pretoria on Wednesday found that former Public Protector (Ombudsman ) Thuli Madonsela's recommended remedial actions, after her investigation report into state capture (corruption) against President Jacob Zuma, were "wise, necessary, rational and appropriate."In a landmark and scathing judgment, the full bench of the court led by Judge President Dunstan Mlambo, dismissed Zuma's application against Madonsela's report, which the president sought to nullify".
Mlambo said there was no basis for Zuma's application to interdict the release of the report.
Two months ago, the supreme court of appeal had ruled that the more-than-700 corruption charges against Zuma that were dropped had to be reinstated.
Zuma has survived several votes of no-confidence in parliament.
British Prime Minister Theresa May loses key Brexit vote
Brexit secretary David Davis has promised to give MPs a final vote, and issued a statement Wednesday in a bid to head off the rebellion.
In her report, released in November 2016, Ms. Madonsela called for the creation of a public inquiry, but Mr. Zuma has resisted, saying that the public protector did not have the authority to order him to set up the inquiry since the decision was his prerogative.
Mr Zuma has been accused of conspiring with a wealthy business family, the Guptas, to control lucrative state contracts.
In October the Supreme Court of Appeal upheld an earlier decision by a lower court that the almost 800 corruption charges relating to an arms deal filed against Zuma before he became president in 2009 be reinstated.
Mlambo said a judicial commission was best suited to investigate the allegations against Zuma.

The Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution (Casac) has asked the Constitutional Court to hear the confirmation proceedings on the appointment of a new National Director of Public Prosecutions urgently.
His grounds of appeal included that the court had erred in holding that he was conflicted and was "unable" to perform his powers as president in relation to the appointment of the NDPP, but yet able to perform his other functions as president.
Ntsekhe told journalists the party chose to file charges against Zuma after a full Bench of the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria delivered its scathing ruling against him.
