PRETORIA- The Hawks have served an indictment on former president Jacob Zuma and summoned him to appear in court at the end of next week.

It is being reported by several media houses that Zuma lawyer Michael Hulley received the indictment on behalf of his client.

This now confirms that Zuma has eleven days to appear at High Court in Durban, as he expected to make his first appearance on fraud and corruption charges.

The former president has spent majority of his time in the presidency fighting and avoiding any possible action on the fraud and corruption charges and any prosecution.

The Supreme Court of Appeal ruled last year that the 2009 decision to withdraw the case against him was unlawful.

Then prosecutions boss Shaun Abrahams announced a few weeks ago that Zuma’s latest representations were unsuccessful and that the National Prosecutions Authority (NPA) will be reinstating the charges against him.

Zuma is expected to appear in court on April 6.
