Will Zuma be charged? NPA boss to announce decision on corruption case

Will Zuma be charged? NPA boss to announce decision on corruption case

He now faces one charge of racketeering, two charges of corruption, one charge of money laundering and 12 of fraud.

Shaun Abrahams, National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP), said this while briefing the media in Pretoria on Friday.

The charges, linked to Mr. Zuma's alleged involvement in a 1999 weapons deal, had been dropped for procedural reasons in April 2009 shortly before Mr. Zuma was elected president of Africa's most developed economy. Zuma was first charged with corruption in 2005 when his financial adviser was jailed on fraud and corruption charges.

A Wrinkle in Time's Ava DuVernay to Direct DC's The New Gods
None of these comics ran for very long, but together they formed the groundwork to a universe with near limitless potential. A Wrinkle In Time filmmaker Ava DuVernay has lined up her next project, New Gods over at DC Films.


Abrahams said in his submission to the NPA that Zuma strongly disputed the allegations against him, insisting that he "lacked the requisite intention to commit any crimes listed in the indictment".

Shaun Abrahams, head of the National Prosecuting Authority, noted the "long history" of the reinstated charges against Zuma, which were thrown out by prosecutors almost a decade ago in a contentious decision that opened the way for him to become president.

Friday's announcement follows more than a decade of controversy over the arms deal and many twists along the way - including a court case brought by the opposition Democratic Alliance contesting the 2009 decision by state prosecutors to drop the charges. A year ago a court ruled that the decision to throw out the charges had been irrational and ordered prosecutors to reinstate.

Drake & Ninja's Fortnite Session On Twitch Wasn't A Sponsorship Stunt
If you're not an active Fortnite player, think of the emotes as the dance moves in Madden when a player accomplishes a play. Ninja typically brings in around 60,000 to 90,000 viewers per stream, which is more than what other big names like Dr.


Abrahams said Zuma denies wrongdoing. This decision was declared irrational by a high court in 2016.

Cat with nine live, that's a phrase that has been used to describe former South African president, Jacob Zuma.

"It doesn't matter who you are, whether you are the president, in whatever office you hold, accountability must be effective and justice will be met", said DA leader Mmusi Maimane. Shaikh was later released on medical parole. "The witnesses are ready, the evidence is strong, and Jacob Zuma must finally have his day in court".

Dele Alli is world's best 21-year-old, says Mauricio Pochettino
Pochettino's hyperbole invited the comparison between Alli and some of the game's other stellar talents in his age bracket. The Spurs boss added: "The reality is with his crutch and boot, we need to assess him day by day and look at the reaction".


The country's governing African National Congress pushed Zuma out of office last month. Zuma insists he is innocent.
