The chief justice’s office confirmed that former ANC president Jacob Zuma will appear in Pietermaritzburg in court.
Zuma is expected to appear in a court case on Friday, which will now be four days sooner than initially scheduled.
The case, which would initially begin on October 15, was premature amid his initial request that the case be wholly removed from the role of the arms deal he allegedly was involved in.
The lawsuit will only take place after Zuma has managed to evade the courtroom for several years, but after 14 years the moment of truth has come to him about the alleged corruption involving a R38 billion transaction.
These are some of the knife’s serious court cases that have been held lately, and suspicions exist that conviction could lead to a long time behind bars for the former ANC leader.
