Zuma's illness might not lead him to be arrested. Here's why?

Google:SuppliedJacob Zuma requires medical attention around the clock, but no facility that provides correctional services is equipped to provide it for him. This information was presented today at the Supreme Court of Appeal, where Mr. Zuma is appealing a decision from December that ruled his release on medical parole to violate the law.

Arthur Fraser was forced to grant medical parole to former President Jacob Zuma because the correctional services did not have sufficient facilities to treat him. He had no choice but to do so.

This is one of the arguments that the legal team representing the former president is going to be presenting.

In December of the previous year, the High Court in Pretoria ruled that Zuma's medical parole violated the law.

On Monday, the Supreme Court in Bloemfontein heard his appeal of the court's decision.

The condition of Mr. Zuma required that he be under the care of a medic on a 24-hour basis, a situation which was not possible at the facility as the correctional center can only accommodate inmates overnight, according to Advocate Dali Mpofu, who is Zuma's legal representative. "It should be noted that according to SAMS — that's the military people — the condition of Mr. Zuma required that he be under the care of a medic on a 24-hour basis.

Zuma is back in court in connection with his parole status.

As a result, it was decided that the medic could not spend the entire day with Mr. Zuma because there was not enough space in the correctional facility to accommodate both the medic and Mr. Zuma.

Judgment has been reserved.
