It is the latest in a series of delays in the long-running case, in which 79-year-old Zuma faces multiple charges including corruption, racketeering and money laundering over the weapons contract over which he allegedly received kickbacks.

Zuma was jailed for 15 months in July for defying a constitutional court order to appear at a separate inquiry into corruption during his scandal-plagued time in office.

He is currently in hospital, however, after the government said on Sunday he had been placed on medical parole for an undisclosed condition.

Zuma, in power from 2009 until 2018, denies wrongdoing and has pleaded not guilty to all charges against him.

Where is Sars?

In their back pockets …. next to the wallets.

As long as he pays his accounts.

Somehow I don’t think that happens either.

In this country with it’s FAKE justice system they probably pay him.

Judge Koen needs to get a handle on this and very quickly,
He is being made to look like a fool by Dali Mpofu. That is quite a sad state of affairs.
Only people that still pay Dali Mpofu are corrupt politicians.
