Nov. 30, 2019

A full bench of the Pietermaritzburg High Court on Friday denied with costs former president Jacob Zuma and co-accused Thales application for leave to appeal the court's decision which decided that they should stand trial.
The court has denied Zuma's appeal saying that it doesn't think that there reasonable prospects of success in a higher court.
The ruling means that Zuma's corruption trial will proceed in 2020.
Clement Manyathela on the Xolani Gwala Show chats to EWN reporter Nkosikhona Duma who is following the story.
The judges have said that there are no prospects for the case to proceed and the former president's arguments of political interference and that the matter has been delayed, are not rational or compelling for this matter. The judges do not think that the Supreme Court of Appeal will rule differently.
Zuma was not in court on Friday however, his spokesperson who said the lawyers will study the ruling by the judges and will make a decision as to whether they will petition the ruling or not, Duma reports.
