Zuma corruption trial: 10,000 supporters will not appear in court, spokesman says
With the likelihood that former President Jacob Zuma will not appear in court on Tuesday, his supporters have resolved to direct their resources to a possible May start of his corruption trial.
“We are not mobilizing tomorrow [Tuesday] because there is a high possibility that he will not be in court … if he comes to court in May, we will do more of our mobilization in May, “Bishop Vusi Dube, the head of Zuma supporters, told News24 on Monday.
Zuma is not expected to appear in person after there were erroneous speculations that his trial would begin Tuesday after 15 years.
