Zuma’s Corruption Case Postponed to April 2022

Former South African President Jacob Zuma’s effort to get a prosecutor removed from his corruption case has been dismissed by the Pietermaritzburg High Court.


Zuma filed a special application to have prosecutor Billy Downer taken off his case, accusing him of bias.

Zuma, 79, attended the court proceedings in one of his first public appearances since he was released from jail in September.


He was released on medical parole after serving nearly two months of his 15-month jail sentence for defying an order of the Constitutional Court to testify at an investigation into corruption during his time as president from 2009 to 2018.
