The Jacob Zuma Foundation is set to host a welcome back prayer meeting at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Thursday morning for former President Jacob Zuma.

This follows Zuma’s discharge from hospital following his release on medical parole last month.

The former President handed himself to police after the Constitutional Court found him to be in contempt of court in July.

The Foundations’ spokesperson, Mzwanele Manyi, says it is unclear whether Zuma will make an appearance.

He says, “We are hoping to do that, we are just trying to make sure that as we do that we are still much in line with the requirements of the parole. So we are busy finalising the consultation with lawyers and all of that, just to make sure that if he does do that there is no opportunity given to the haters to now pounce him. So we are just being extra vigilant, to make sure that whatever we do must be in line with the law.”

Zuma was placed on medical parole on September 5, 2021:
