Jacob Zuma files papers saying why he shouldn’t face criminal charges

Zuma has been charged with racketeering, corruption and fraud linked to his relationship with his former financial adviser Schabir Shaik, who was convicted of corrupting him. He also stands accused of accepting a bribe deal from French arms company Thint, in exchange for his protection from any potential arms deal investigation.

Thint is also fighting to have the case against it permanently withdrawn.

The NPA is opposing both applications. The case against Zuma and Thint will be back in court at the end of the month.

This is a developing story.
