JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - A lawyer for former South African president Jacob Zuma told a corruption inquiry on Friday that Zuma would not take part in the inquiry further because he felt that he was being questioned unfairly.

"Chair, we are here today to say we will take no further part in these proceedings," lawyer Muzi Sikhakhane told the inquiry. He said Zuma had been subject to "relentless cross-examination."
