Bad news; Jacob Zuma is terminally ill

a man holding his head in his hands: FILE: Former South African President <a class=Jacob Zuma removes his eyeglasses as he addresses the media at his home in Nkandla, KwaZulu-Natal on 4 July 2021."/>JOHANNESBURG - Jacob Zuma's legitimate group demands that the previous president is critically ill contending that his clinical parole challenge depends on deliberate misdirection. 

The High Court in Pretoria heard a critical application on Tuesday by the Helen Suzman Foundation, AfriForum and the Democratic Alliance (DA) to have the choice to give Zuma clinical parole put away. 


Zuma was delivered in September, only months after the Constitutional Court condemned him to 15 months detainment for disdain of court. 

The associations that have brought the critical application against previous President Jacob Zuma's clinical parole have charged then-Correctional Services manager Arthur Fraser of mishandling the framework and acting unlawfully. 

The candidates contended that Fraser neglected to validate his purposes behind giving Zuma parole, especially with no data demonstrating that he was in critical condition or weakened. 

Notwithstanding, Zuma's attorney, Advocate Dali Mpofu, has depicted the court challenge as trivial and in light of lies, adding that Zuma did truth be told furnish the clinical parole board with his clinical report. 

"Dr Mphatswe knows precisely about Section 79.1 in light of the fact that he is an individual from the board, so he would not say that 'I wish to suggest that the candidate be delivered on clinical parole' assuming conditions were not been met." 

Judgment regarding the present situation has been held.
