Why Zuma Spy Tape judgment is huge

29 April, 03:24 PM

Adriaan Basson says the North Gauteng High Court judgment on Friday is huge, politically and for President Jacob Zuma.

A full bench ruled that a decision by former National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) head Mokotedi Mpshe was irrational.

In 2009 Mpshe single-handedly decided to drop corruption charges against President Jacob Zuma.

However, as Judge Audrey Ledwaba read the judgment on Friday, Mpshe's team and deputies "were of the view that prosecution should continue."

So, what does today's ruling mean for Zuma regarding charges of corruption against him?
