President Jacob Zuma In $24million Various Corruption Scandal by miteolu(m): 1:14pm On Jun 28, 2016
Six weeks before crucial municipal elections, ANC leader and South African President Jacob Zuma has suffered another courtroom setback. Corruption charges against him, once believed buried, are resurfacing.
President Jacob Zuma has lost an appeal in which he was seeking to overturn a court ruling that reinstated hundreds of corruption charges against him.


The 783 charges of corruption, fraud and money laundering relate to a multibillion dollar arms deal arranged in the late 1990s.
An appeal against the reinstatement of the charges against Zuma was also lodged by the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA). It, too, was thrown out.
Judge Aubrey Ledwaba at the North Gauteng High Court said there was "no merit" in the arguments for an appeal.
The same court had ordered a review of a decision by the NPA in 2009 to withdraw hundreds of charges against Zuma. Within weeks of this decision, Zuma was running for president. He was sworn in on May 9, 2009.
The NPA justified the decision to drop the charges by saying that phone calls recorded between officials in the administration of the then President Thabo Mbeki revealed a political conspiracy against Zuma.
Zuma's tenure has been beset by scandal. The Constitutional Court rebuked him for failing to obey the ombudswoman's order to repay government money spent on upgrading his Nkandla home. The South African treasury is set to determine this coming Tuesday how much of the 216 million rand (then $24 million, 18 million euros) he will be ordered to return.

According to report from allafrica news, Zuma survived an oppostion attempt to impeach him over the scandal because of the backing he enjoys from the ruling ANC party in parliament.
