South Africa's President Jacob Zuma challenged Friday a court ruling which ordered him to launch a legal probe into corruption allegations against him, according to legal documents.It said the country's chief justice, not Zuma, should choose a judge to preside over the inquiry to avoid a conflict of interest.In its ruling last week, the court also reprimanded the president for being "seriously reckless" by defying the recommendations of the country's graft watchdog which proposed the judicial inquiry.Zuma had tried to block the publication of the report arguing that he had not been granted enough time to respond to the allegations.
