Jacob Zuma support groups adamant he won't be given a fair trial
Zuma's supporters are expected to flood Durban on Thursday afternoon in support of former president Jacob Zuma as he will appearing in the Durban high court in less than 24 hours.
Zuma is expected to answer to 16 charges of corruption, fraud and racketeering.
Various groups that are in support of Zuma will be hosting a night vigil ahead of Zuma's appearance in court.
Bishop TB Ngcobo says they are confident that Jacob Zuma will not be given a fair trial.
The reason we are saying that, if you look at these cases, they were discussed in Parliament by the opposition parties and the NPA is acting upon what was discussed. The message they are sending to the public is that the former president is corrupt.Bishop TB Ngcobo, Zuma supporter
Ngcobo says Zuma is being persecuted before he is even found guilty by the courts, and that is what they are fighting against.
Now we are saying to the people - let's go to court with Msholozi tomorrow so that the court can decide whether he is guilty or not.Bishop TB Ngcobo, Zuma supporter
Ngcobo says even if Zuma is found guilty, they will not accept that verdict, because of the treatment he is receiving from the public and opposition parties.
Zuma received the same treatment around the Nkandla case, where he was accused of corruption for equipment installed at his home without his knowledge, he adds.
He believes that the courts will be influenced by what other groups have said.
Ncgcobo refused to disclose the list of donors funding the activities line-up in support of Zuma.
