Zuma loses bid to appeal ruling in corruption case

Former President Jacob Zuma’s bid to appeal a decision by the Pietermaritzburg High Court that he should stand for trial in his corruption case has been dismissed.

The Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) on Friday ruled that the former statesman has no reasonable prospects of success.

Business Day journalist Karyn Maughan has more on the story.

It does seem unlikely that the Constitutional Court will give the former president a hearing, in which case all his kind of legal avenues have been exhausted and he will have to face trial.
