Zuma could approach Con Court if SCA attempt fails

President Jacob Zuma could still approach the Constitutional Court as a last resort should his leave to appeal against his 783 corruption charges prove unsuccessful.

This comes after the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) ruling that his lawyers should argue in open court on why the High Court charges shouldn't be reinstated.

If the SCA dismissed President Zuma's application for leave to appeal then he can still go to the Constitutional Court, he is entitled to do so.
