Jacob Zuma's Corruption Hearing Adjourned To September 21, 22

Jacob Zuma's Corruption Hearing Adjourned To September 21, 2

A South African high court on Thursday postponed the hearing of former president Jacob Zuma’s corruption trial linked to the 1990s arms deal to September 21 and 22.

The 12-day postponement was agreed upon between Zuma’s lawyers and prosecutors and granted by Judge Piet Koen at the Pietermaritzburg High Court.

It is the latest in a series of delays in the long-running case in which 79-year-old Zuma faces multiple charges including corruption, racketeering, and money laundering over the weapons contract over which he allegedly received kickbacks.

Zuma was jailed for 15 months in July for defying a constitutional court order to appear at a separate inquiry into corruption during his scandal-plagued time in office.

He is currently in a hospital, however, after the government said on Sunday he had been placed on medical parole for an undisclosed condition.

Zuma, who was in power from 2009 until 2018, denies wrongdoings and has pleaded not guilty to all charges against him.
