Could you please clarify the statement "They replace the -z with a -c in all forms. This is because after z you can only have the vowels a, o and u."1. The word "zeta" appears to disprove this statement so is there a further qualification to the rule that's missing?
2. Why can those letters not follow "z"?Gracias!

I suspect it's because they are foreign words. although that doesn't explain cebra.
Hola Tony and David
Yes, there are a few words in Spanish that have spelling ze and zi, but these are words that have a different origin and used that spelling originally (Greek origin, Arab origin...)
