Former president Jacob Zuma says the charges against him are a continuation of what he calls a political conspiracy against him.
He was addressing his supporters outside the High Court in Durban after his brief appearance. Zuma’s case will be heard on June 8th.
This after both the prosecution and the defence teams requested more time in order to allow Zuma’s legal team to bring a review application against the National Prosecuting Authority’s decision to reinstate the charges against him.
Zuma’s legal team will lodge the application on May the 15th. Zuma is facing 16 counts of fraud, money laundering and racketeering related to the multi-billion-rand arms deal.
