Former president Zuma has appointed a new legal team to defend his case in desperate attempts to escape prosecution for alleged corruption.
However, experts believe that Zuma’s new team of legal representatives will struggle to get him acquitted, and will also fail to meet Zuma’s desire to end the trial against him.
The corruption case against the former ANC president is already older than a decade, and has begun in 2003 when he was vice president of the Mbeki regime. Zuma has been accused of receiving bribes from Schabir Shaik’s at the time, and this has resulted in Shaik landing in jail. However, Shaik has since been released on “parole” for serious health reasons and apparently been on the verge of death is currently enjoying a great life. It is to believe that he won’t stand trail again on charges of corruption or being connected to Zuma.
