Still in the dark over Zuma's strategy

Former President Jacob Zuma is returning to court today with the nation still in the dark over whether he will allow his corruption, fraud and money laundering to proceed. the court said that the matter must be heard instead of being struck off the roll. The former president can allow the matter to proceed and later appeal the sentence if not happy or ask the same court to permit him to appeal Friday's judgement.

Friday's ruling by a full bench of the Pietermaritzburg High Court was that Zuma be tried after he had applied to have the matter squashed for good. However, Proffessor Perrie de Vos a Constitutional law expert at the University of Cape Town, said Zuma's chances of success should he decide to appeal were slim.

 Despite being out of office and having lost power the former president will have supporters from ANC members from eThikwini and Pietermaritsburg supports have arranged to court, they are expecting 8000 people that Zuma will address after his appearance.
