The ruling was seen by analysts as devastating to the president who had initially blocked the release of the report, entitled "State of Capture", which focused on allegations that Zuma's friends, the businessmen and brothers Ajay, Atul and Rajesh Gupta, had influenced the appointment of ministers.
Zuma has filed papers seeking to appeal against the decision by Judge Dunstan Mlambo that Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng chooses the judge to head up the commission.
Spokesperson Alex Mashilo said, "If the appeal is dismissed it will prove to be waste of taxpayer's money". South Africa needs to root out corruption in all its manifestation if it is to become a prosperous society underpinned by a fully developed democracy without the exploitation of public resources, national wealth and one person by another.
Opposition party the Democratic Alliance indicated that it would oppose Zuma's application.
South African President Jacob Zuma has applied to appeal the North Gauteng High Court's ruling setting aside the president's review application of former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's State of Capture report, APA can report on Friday.Madonsela's State of Capture report had called for a probe into Zuma's involvement in alleged state capture (corruption) in the country. She also directed that the commission's chairperson be selected by Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng, because the president had a conflict of interest.

"We can not allow this abuse of court processes to become a feature of the way the president gets away with things", James Selfe, the DA's federal council chair said on Friday.
Zuma's 11-page application cites 20 grounds on which he will argue against‚ among other decisions‚ that he should personally pay costs and that he must institute a judicial commission of inquiry, as recommended by Madonsela.
"The president must have realised there was no basis for him to persist with the litigation", Mlambo said.
"As a province we have been clear in our stance towards state capture, it has not only robbed the people of this country but it has tainted the image of our glorious movement and this is something we intend on fighting", Ngxanga said. "The North Gauteng High Court found Zuma to be reckless, unreasonable and ill-advised, and held him personally liable for the legal costs", said Fedusa General Secretary Dennis George.
