Zuma loyalists rally at his court appearance in corruption case

Judge Themba Sishi told Mr Zuma to come back to court on 8 June.

Zuma plans to legally challenge a decision to prosecute him on 16 charges, including fraud, racketeering, corruption and money laundering, that stem from the deal.

The original charges against Mr Zuma, which arose from 783 suspicious payments he received, were controversially dropped in 2009 shortly before he was appointed South Africa's president for the first time.

Following the postponement yesterday, Hoffman said that given the track record of Zuma's legal team, he foresaw they would lodge a review proceeding in respect of the decision not to uphold the representations made by Zuma.

Zuma said he chose to resign in order to prevent bloodshed as no life should be lost because of him.

JACOB Zuma supporters have started their walk from King Dinizulu park to the Durban High Court.

Zuma also pointed out that 13 years had passed since he last appeared in court for the same charges and blamed opposition parties for the case's return to court.

The rallies in support of him were "an appalling exhibition of disregard for the very serious charges he faces", prominent broadcaster Eusebius McKaiser tweeted.

In March 2016 the South African Supreme Court of Appeal upheld a judgement that the failure by Zuma's government to arrest Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir was illegal.

NAIJ.com previously reported that Jacob Zuma resigned as the president of South Africa amidst numerous controversies surrounding his administration. The court then ordered the NPA's chief prosecutor Shaun Abrahams to reinstate them.

It ruled that his application was ill-advised and reckless and also found that Zuma was to be held personally liable for the legal costs. "They will exhaust every avenue to appeal and that will take about two to three years", Hoffman said.

Zuma stated that he would be proven innocent in a corruption case against him and his opponents were telling lies.

Thousands of people have gathered today, 6 April 2018, outside the Durban High Court ahead of former President Jacob Zuma's court case. He resigned February 14 on the orders of his party, the African National Congress.
