Just a few minutes ago, Shaun Abrahams, head of South Africa’s National Prosecuting Authority, announced that the country’s former President, Jacob Zuma, will have to face corruption charges in court.
Zuma and his lawyers will need to prepare a defense against 16 charges, which have been following him for years. Previous charges had been set aside by the former NPA head, but this was later declared unconstitutional.
Zuma’s representations, submitted last month to Abrahams, proved unsuccessful. Zuma has stated consistently that he is not guilty of any wrongdoing in relation to the charges in question.
A court date is yet to be announced.
