Cape Town - More than 10 years after being served with the original indictment, and later seeing the charges declared unlawful on procedural grounds, former president Jacob Zuma is to be charged after the National Prosecuting Authority said it believed it could successfully prosecute him.

The 16 charges of corruption, money laundering, fraud and racketeering stem from a bribe he allegedly received from French arms company Thales to influence the awarding of contracts in South Africa's multi-billion-rand arms deal.

In 1997, Thales won a R2.6bn stake to supply combat systems for four frigates procured by the navy as part of South Africa's R60bn arms acquisition programme.

The charges announced on Friday relate to 783 questionable payments Zuma allegedly received.
