Former president to return to court

Johannesburg – Former President Jacob Zuma will be back in the High Court in Pietermaritzburg on Wednesday.

It will rule on his latest bid to have prosecutor Billy Downer removed from his corruption trial.

In October, Judge Piet Koen dismissed an application for Downer to be dropped from the case.

The former president argued the state was neither independent nor impartial.

In January his lawyer, Dali Mpofu, said Zuma felt his case was being treated differently from others.

Should Zuma’s application be successful it could delay his corruption trial set to begin on April 11th.
