The Zuma rape trial continues

The rape trial of former deputy president Jacob Zuma enters its ninth day today. Yesterday the prosecution presented a record of phone calls between Zuma, his associates and the complainant’s family to paint a picture of damage control in the aftermath of the alleged rape. Last week the complainant told the Johannesburg High Court that she received calls from Zuma and KwaZulu-Natal finance MEC Zweli Mkhize, who were trying to set up a meeting with her. She also said she met lawyer Yusuf Dockrat, who tried to persuade her not to proceed with the rape charge. Zuma has denied raping the woman, but claims they had consensual sex.
