Didn't this trial "start" like 2 years ago?

I wonder who is scheduled for a health scare next?

Jacob Zuma does not see himself subjected to the rule of law in South Africa. He will tell the courts to f**k off and he will simply not appear for his trial. The whole incident will be turned into a political sh**show and no actions will be taken. Nothing will come from this trial.

Zuma cannot simply walk out on a trial. He tried to discredit the NPA yesterday. The pre-trial is done, all parties agreed.

What people should know is that they have over 200 witnesses, some which are based overseas, the case is going to take years, but Zuma will be unable to evade it unless something changes.

This is still the best chance we have to see him behind bars.

No matter the outcome of any court zuma will never be put behind bars under our current corrupt criminal government.

If he goes down they all go down.

If anything he will be "silenced" in some way or another be it the best option death or "illness"

nobody will dare lock up Zuma, look how long it took for him to give up the presidency.
the ANC protects the Criminals and thieves that line its ranks.
First, it was, "he'll never see court".
Then it was, "it'll never go to trial"
Now it's, "he'll never be locked up"

Why not just wait and see. No one knows how strong a case the state has. Luckily the concourt might order him jailed in a very short while. Jail with no recourse to appeals, hope they don't refer it to a lower court for actual sentence as that would allow him to weasel off in more appeals.

that man will never see jail,
that much I can guarantee you,

will end up as a lawyer and legal circus, like it already is.
guess the bribes and kickbacks are being worked out now.

Some of those international ones were already prosecuted & found guilty for their part in this in their own countries.

Second contempt of court finding incoming?
If he evades trial he's simply arrested. But I'm sure he is not above pulling another medical stunt where he doesn't show up and has some doctor certify him sick after the fact.
