"Shaik : the drama begins" (October 10) recorded the fact that only 34% of South Africans believe President Jacob Zuma's innocence.

What kind of inverted reporting is this? Why was is not reported that 66% of South Africans either believe he is guilty or are not sure what's happening? Why not report on the poll that found the vast majority believe Zuma should he be brought to trial after the Shaik trial?
