South Africa’s Former President Jacob Zuma Sentenced to 15 Months in Prison

JOHANNESBURG—South Africa’s Constitutional Court sentenced former President Jacob Zuma to 15 months imprisonment for contempt of court Tuesday, after he refused to appear at a government-appointed commission investigating alleged corruption during his nine years in office.

In a biting verdict, Acting Deputy Chief Justice Sisi Khampepe accused Mr. Zuma, who was forced by his own party to resign in 2018, of risking a constitution crisis by failing to follow an order by South Africa’s top court to appear at the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture. Lalasticlala

The commission, which was launched by Mr. Zuma himself during his final days in office, has for nearly three years listened to testimony on how he and members of his government allegedly allowed well-connected business men and foreign companies to score overpriced government contracts in return for payments and other favors.

He was SENTENCED. Doesn't mean he'd actually serve it. I bet he won't serve a day in jail

Well, you'd seem to have a point. But from the story it seems like gra gra sentence. He dissed them by not even bothering to show up - probably because he knew there was nothing they could do!

You may have a point. Just saw the below. But it also says he'd be treated like royalty. Imagine if it were a regular joe - he'd be doing hard labor
