Jacob Zuma Must Face Corruption Charges

The North Gauteng High Court on Friday, 24 June dismissed with costs the National Prosecuting Authority’s (NPA) application for leave to appeal in the matter relating to President Jacob Zuma’s corruption charges.

The Democratic Alliance (DA) opposed an application for leave to appeal by the NPA, an April judgment that set aside Mpshe’s decision to end Zuma’s prosecution on 783 criminal charges.

The DA had submitted‚ before the high court in Pretoria‚ that the decision in 2009 by Mokotedi Mpshe‚ then acting national director of public prosecutions‚ to discontinue the prosecution of Zuma was ‘irrational’.

Mpshe discontinued the prosecution of Zuma because he believed the Scorpions boss‚ Leonard McCarthy‚ had manipulated the timing of when to serve the indictment against Zuma.
