Another twist in the Zuma trial

The KZN newspaper The Witness reports that former deputy president Jacob Zuma’s love child Edward has also faced a rape charge. Edward’s uncle Judge Jeremiah Shongwe recused himself from Zuma’s case earlier this week. Mziwoxolo Edward Zuma was arrested in October 2000 for allegedly raping a fellow student at the University of Zululand. The charges were withdrawn and Zuma's office issued a statement saying the two parties had resolved the matter amicably. It was claimed later that the girl who had laid the charge against Edward Zuma had been paid to drop the charges. The payments formed part of the corruption charges against Jacob Zuma’s financial advisor, Schabir Shaik.
