Ex-President Zuma was sentenced to 15 months jail in July,2021 for failing to appear to the court; court contempt. He is to report to court on August 10,2021 for substantive cases to be dealt with. Zuma has pleaded not guilty to any of the 16 charges slapped on him.
The Department of Correctional Services said that “former president Jacob Zuma has today, 6 August 2021, been admitted to outside hospital for medical observation,”.
The 79 year old Jacob Zuma lawyers seek to pleas for the charges to be dropped and ask for freedom on the next hearing date on August 10,2021. However, this case has lingered on for a very long time and so most South Africans say it is long overdue for justice to be administered.
