Democratic leader Mmusi Maimane says he fells vindicated for appealing the corruption case against former president Jacob Zuma.
Prosecution head Shaun Abrahams announced on Friday that the state will go ahead and pursue corruption charges against former president Jacob Zuma.
Zuma faces 18 charges of fraud corruption and money laundering related to 783 payments from his former advisor Shabir Shaik.
It was the right decision to appeal the decision then and it still is that in fact Jacob Zuma should get what he has always wanted; his day in court.— Mmusi Maimane, DA leader
Mmusi says there is political impact on this decision by Abrahams. He says if the integrity of the NPA is compromised and the rule of law undermined, the next president may do likewise.
We need to ask President Ramaphosa to in fact withdraw from financing the legal fees of Jacob Zuma; because they had this agreement that helped finance this case now we need to stop that agreement.— Mmusi Maimane, DA leader
