All eyes on Shaun Abrahams as SCA hands down judgment in Zuma's bid to appeal

The Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) will hand down judgment on Friday in the application for leave to appeal by President Jacob Zuma and the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) in relation to the fraud and corruption counts against the President.

Zuma and the NPA approached the court seeking to have a Pretoria High Court judgment overturned.

The court held that the charges be reinstated.

Speaking at the annual Flagship Thought Laboratory in Alexandra on Thursday, former finance minister Pravin Gordhan said that Cyril Ramaphosa should fire Zuma after the ANC elective conference in December in the event he becomes the party's President.

Yesterday we already saw people circling the occasion saying that depending on who wins at the December conference, that President Jacob Zuma should be sacked come next year.

That isn't a far fetched call, in fact I think it is a prerequisite for the camp that wants to distinguish themselves as something new, something different, a clean up from the Zuma days.
