The Department of Correctional Services says it has released former President Jacob Zuma from its system.
In August, the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) in Bloemfontein reserved judgment in his medical parole case, after the High Court in Pretoria ordered Zuma to go back to prison after setting aside his medical parole last year.
In a statement, the department says, “Medical parole placement meant that Mr. Zuma was to serve the remainder of his sentence under Kranskop Community Corrections. Essentially, Mr Zuma complied with his conditions of medical parole as set out during his placement. All administrative processes have been concluded and the sentence expiry date marks the end of him serving his sentence under community corrections.”
