Zuma camp angry as NPA set to appeal

2008-09-17 00:00

The jubilation of the Jacob Zuma faction over Judge Chris Nicholson’s ruling on Friday that the ANC president’s prosecution is invalid on “procedural” grounds, changed to dismay and anger yesterday when the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) announced it will seek leave to appeal Nicholson’s judgment.

Some sources question why the NPA chose the long route of an appeal when the judge ruled that if it follows the correct procedure and hears representations from Zuma, the state can re-charge him.
