It is unclear if former president Jacob Zuma and French arms company Thales trial for Arms Deal-related corruption will go ahead on Monday after Zuma's legal team resigned for alleged "ethical reasons" three weeks ago, writes Karyn Maughan.

For well over a year, former president Jacob Zuma has repeatedly stated that he wants to face his Arms Deal corruption trial as soon as possible - but will he finally plead to the charges against him on Monday morning?

If history is anything to go by, probably not.
