WARRANT OF ARREST FOR ZUMA


A warrant of arrest will be issued for former President Jacob Zuma should he fail to appear in court when his corruption trial resumes in May.

The Pietermaritzburg High Court today issued a warrant of his arrest but suspended it until his next court appearance.

Zuma failed to provide sufficient proof for his failure to appear with the Judge Dhaya Pillay questioning the admissibility of the sick note he provided.

 “A warrant for accused 1 Mr Zuma is issued but stayed until 6 May 2020, the date on which the matter will resume,” Judge Pillay ruled on Tuesday. She said that his lawyers had not given the court sufficient proof that Zuma was indeed ill and therefore was unable to appear.
