Former president Jacob Zuma is expected to know on Friday if his corruption case will be dismissed by the KwaZulu-Natal High Court in Pietermaritzburg.
Earlier this year, the former president argued in court why he wanted his case to be struck off the roll.
Eyewitness News reporter Clement Manyathela gives a recap.
Basically what the former president has been arguing is 'drop this corruption case against me, you have no case at all, if anything I have been prejudiced'. His lawyers spoke about how he is broke, he can't finance this corruption trial. They have really portrayed him as a victim of a political smear campaign.— Clement Manyathela, Reporter - EWN
But the state came back and argued that we are not going to allow you to argue that the 'unreasonable delays' have prejudiced the former president because he is actually responsible for those delays... and you don't have evidence that this case is politically motivated.— Clement Manyathela, Reporter - EWN
