Zuma to be charged with corruption

The South African chief prosecutor Shaun Abrahams announced the state will reinstate fraud and corruption charges against former President Jacob Zuma for the case relating to a 30 billion rand ($2.5 billion) arms deal in the late 1990s.

The decision follows the ruling by the Supreme Court of Appeal which set aside the 2009 decision to withdraw the case against the former President.

A team of five senior state prosecutors spent four weeks studying Zuma’s reasons if there are sufficient grounds to pursue him, after submitting the information at the end of January.

Abrahams announced two weeks ago that he had received a recommendation from the team and was ready to make the announcement, which is made public on 16th of March.
