Electoral court to hear DA SMS appeal

Bloemfontein - The Electoral Court will hear argument on Friday in an appeal against a ruling that a DA SMS about President Jacob Zuma's Nkandla homestead was fair comment.

An court official confirmed the hearing would take place at the Supreme Court of Appeal in Bloemfontein at 10:00 on Friday.

The South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg granted the African National Congress leave to appeal against its decision on the DA's SM on 12 April.

Acting Judge Mike Hellens dismissed the ANC's application to stop the distribution of the SMS, saying it was fair comment.

In the SMS, sent to over 1.5 million voters in Gauteng, the DA said: "The Nkandla report shows how Zuma stole your money to build his R246m home."

The SMS followed findings by Public Protector Thuli Madonsela that Zuma and his family unduly benefited from R246m in security upgrades to his KwaZulu-Natal residence.
