Former president Jacob Zuma has hit out at his detractors saying that he has been wounded by the people that he grew up with.
Zuma spoke outside the Durban High Court on Friday morning where his corruption case has been postponed.
He says that he is facing the same charges that he’s always been accused of but have never been proven.
Zuma has told thousands of supporters that the reinstatment of corruption charges against him is politically motivated.
Hundreds marched to the court earlier this morning where the former president finally appeared in the dock, after almost a decade, over charges related to the arms deal.
A short while ago, Zuma’s corruption case was provisionally adjourned to 8 June.
State prosecutor Billy Downer explained why they want a postponement
“The purpose of the adjournment is two-fold. Firstly, in respect of accused number one, Mr Zuma, we’ve been informed by our learned friends for Mr Zuma the he wishes to bring a review application on the decision to prosecute him again and in that respect we’ve been informed that they hope to finalise the review papers by the middle of May.”
