[LISTEN] Fewer supporters for Jacob Zuma outside the Pietermaritzburg court

Former President Jacob Zuma will be making a court appearance at the Pietermaritzburg court over charges of corruption, fraud, and racketeering.

This is the third time the statesman is appearing in court over these charges.

The last two appearances drew a large crowd of supporters outside the Durban high court but this time it seems the number of supporters have decreased.

We expect the same thing to happen like it happened previously, it will be straight up and down postponement.

READ: Former President Jacob Zuma to have his day in court on Friday

What is happening here at the court is similar to what we saw in Durban. There was a night vigil but not as well attended as the Durban one which is due to logistical reasons, according to the organisers.

Former President Jacob Zuma fired his long-time attorney Michael Hulley weeks before this court appearance which people said it might be a delay tactic.
