Former president Jacob Zuma’s foundation on Tuesday declined to comment on reports that he has been hospitalised.
According to a TimesLive news report published on Tuesday, Zuma went to hospital on Monday for what family members said was “regular check-up”.
Asked to confirm whether Zuma had been hospitalised, JG Zuma Foundation spokesperson, Mzwanele Manyi, said Zuma’s day-to-day activities were not of public interest.
“I don’t see any news here,” he said.
Zuma, who in July was handed a 15-month sentence by the Constitutional Court for defying the ConCourt’s order to appear before the Zondo Commission investigating corruption and state capture, was released from prison on medical parole in September.
While former Correctional Services Department National Commissioner, Arthur Fraser, had defended the department’s decision to release Zuma on medical parole, some organisations, including the DA, Freedom Front Plus and civil rights organisation Afriforum, want the courts to review the decision.
