Country braces for Z-day

The nation today awaits with bated breath the ruling by Judge Chris Nicholson in the Pietermaritzburg High Court that could effectively leave Jacob Zuma free to contest next year’s general election without the cloud of corruption charges hanging over his head.

In that case, Zuma and his co-accused, French arms company Thint, have already indicated that they will apply for a permanent stay of prosecution in November, based on different legal grounds. They are expected to submit that the accused cannot get a fair trial, because of the delays in bringing them to trial. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
