The corruption case against former president Jacob Zuma has seen delay after delay over the years.
As part of the push for the trial to be dismissed, advocate Muzi Sikhakhane told the KwaZulu-Natal High Court in Pietermaritzburg that Zuma has been treated with hatred and in an unfair and inhumane manner given the unreasonable delays in bringing the case to trial.
Eusebius McKaiser spoke to Tiso Blackstar specialist reporter Karyn Maughan about who is to blame.
The question is not simply about time and what caused the delay. It is about forensic prejudice.— Karyn Maughan, Specialist reporter - Tiso Blackstar
If the delay has caused witnesses to die, lose their memory and no longer be available. I mean, even Jacob Zuma himself has said he can't remember the events for which he is charged. So it becomes an issue about forensic prejudice.— Karyn Maughan, Specialist reporter - Tiso Blackstar
