JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South African President Jacob Zuma has asked that an ongoing investigation by an anti-graft chief on a range of issues be delayed until he has a chance to question other witnesses in the probe, the presidency said on Monday.

Zuma was questioned for four hours on Thursday over allegations his wealthy business friends, the Gupta family, influenced political appointments, in an investigation by an anti-graft chief who has been a thorn in his side.
