Jacob Zuma filed an affidavit as part of his high court application to have corruption charges against him permanently dropped.

Former president Jacob Zuma claims that the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) is biased and out to get him.

Zuma filed an affidavit as part of his high court application to have corruption charges againts him permanetly dropped.

In the affidavit, the former president argues that he has become a career obsession for some prosecutors who want to convict him at all costs.

He claims that he has suffered more personal and political prejudice than anyone else in South Africa since 1994.

Legal reporter Karyn Maughan says the NPA will have to explain why Zuma was not prosecuted when it took down his former financial advisor Schabir Shaik, for corruption linked to the arms deal.

The decision not to charge him with Shaik was such a history-shifting moment. That is the big question the NPA will have to answer in this application if it wants this application to proceed.

I think Zuma really has a chance on the Shaik issue but it really depends on how the NPA explains its decision.
