Zuma papers about his upcoming corruption trial
Former president, Jacob Zuma, is asking the Pietermaritzburg High Court to acquit him on the basis that the state has lost the “constitutional legitimacy” to present evidence against him. This argument was contained in his response to arguments by Advocate Billy Downer over his special plea application. He lodged the application to demand the removal of the lead state prosecutor in the case against him.
