But he's attending SONA tomorrow. So did his counsel lie or did he lie, and does it qualify as perjury?It is still 'odd'. Zuma's legal counsel explicitly stated that they don't know where he is and that he will only return in id-March. That pushed everything out. I can't get the proper article, but this was reported by The New York Times,
The ruling came after the former president failed to appear to face charges in a corruption case that he has sought to avoid for months, most recently by asserting that he is ill.www.nytimes.com
Why Zuma's legal counsel isn't grilled I don't know. How is the SONA an exception to the rule?
