Jacob Zuma arrested

Bongani Bingwa speaks to Eyewitness News reporter Nkosikhona Duma about what happened in Nkandla last night.

Former President Jacob Zuma has become the first president of democratic South Africa to be arrested, and the first president of South Africa ever to be jailed.

Zuma spent the night at the Estcourt Correctional Centre.

The former president was sentenced to 15 months by the apex court for contempt after refusing to testify at the state capture commission of inquiry that he set up.

A handful of the former president's supporters who were gathered last night also did not expect the events of last night to take place. We were told that a human shield would be formed around the former president and that blood would be spilt before he is taken to jail.

Many people were nervous not knowing what would happen or what to expect.
