The trial of former president Jacob Zuma has been 16 years in the making and is finally expected to commence on Monday, 17 May.
He is facing charges of corruption, racketeering, money laundering and fraud in the KwaZulu-Natal High Court in Pietermaritzburg. The charges are related to the infamous arms deal.
Prosecutor Billy Downer previously said all parties were ready for the trial.
But the decision of Zuma's lawyer to withdraw from the case – just weeks before it was supposed to start – could mean more delays.
What can we expect in and outside the court on Monday? Join News24 editor-in-chief Adriaan Basson, specialist legal reporter Karyn Maughan and political analyst Mpumelelo Mkhabela as they share their insights on what is likely to happen during the much-anticipated trial.
