On Tuesday, former president Jacob Zuma returned to the KwaZulu-Natal High Court in Pietermaritzburg for his corruption trial.
After an arrest warrant that was issued for his non-attendance in court earlier this year, Zuma made sure he was in the dock this time around.

Court proceedings were then adjourned to September.
