What Zuma told supporters about corruption charges


Former South African President, Jacob Zuma, on Friday told thousands of supporters outside court in Durban that his opponents were telling lies.

He stated that he would be proven innocent in a corruption case against him.

Speaking in Zulu, his home province, Zuma said that the judiciary and politicians believed that he did not have rights.

“The truth will come out. What have I done?

“I am innocent until proven guilty.” Zuma told the cheering crowd.

The Durban High Court adjourned until June 8 the case of corruption in a $2.5bn arms deal filed against the ex-South African leader.

Zuma’s legal team and lawyers for the state agreed to the postponement to give both sides time to prepare their submissions on charges including fraud, racketeering and money laundering.
