The story: Former president Jacob Zuma's corruption trial has been postponed to allow the SCA, and possibly the Constitutional Court, to decide on his ongoing efforts to have prosecutor Billy Downer removed.

The details: On 11 April, Zuma's lawyers filed an application for appeal court president Mandisa Maya to reconsider her court's dismissal of his so-called "special plea" appeal.

What's more: According to Downer, and for reasons that have yet to be explained, this application was yet to be placed before Maya.
