Zuma’s trial postponed in absentia

Former President Jacob Zuma’s scheduled court appearance on corruption charges has been postponed.

The NPA announced the news in a media statement this afternoon stating that all parties involved in the case have agreed to postpone the appearance in absentia of the accused and all legal counsel on September 8 2020.

Zuma is on trial alongside Thales, an armament company, that stands accused of paying the former President R500 000 for protection against prosecution in what later became known as the Arms deal.


These monies were alleged to have been paid to Zuma through his then financial adviser, Schabir Shaik.
