Zuma submits new representations to NPA

Reading Time: < 1 minute

President Jacob Zuma has submitted new representations to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) on why he should not face corruption charges.

In October,  the Supreme Court of Appeal dismissed Zuma and the NPA’s application to appeal a previous High Court ruling which found to drop corruption charges against him was irrational.

The charges are in relation to the multi-billion rand arms deal and corruption charges which were dropped before Zuma took office in 2009.

The NPA had given the President until Thursday to make new representations, which could not be like his previous ones.

The DA has submitted their representations to the National Prosecuting Authority to have President Jacob Zuma charged with corruption and fraud. DA spokesperson Portia Adams says Zuma should have his day in court to answer to the allegations.
