Zuma was released from prison on medical parole as his health was said to be deteriorating. His brother, Khanya Zuma said although he is hospitalised, it's nothing serious.
"He left yesterday during the day. It is just a regular check-up, it’s not bad," said Zuma’s brother, Khanya.
Another brother of Jacob Zuma, Joseph, said he heard that Zuma was in hospital, but he was not in Nkandla when he heard the news.
"I am not home, I am in Durban. When I left, I did not know that he would be following me. We are not overly worried because it is just a regular check-up, nothing serious," he said.
It is however not known what sickness Jacob Zuma is battling with, but he has been in and out of hospital for many years now. Zuma was once poisoned during his time as president and he has been having regular trips outside the country to seek medical attention.
Due to Zuma's legal woes, he has not been able to go for regular checkups outside the country, but he has been treated at the military hospital.
Zuma was admitted to the military hospital for medical treatment in August, a few days after he began serving his 15 month jail term for contempt of court at the Estcourt Correctional Centre. This undisclosed sickness of the former president Jacob Zuma is the reason why he was released from prison on medical parole.
Arthur Fraser, the former Prison boss and an alleged sidekick of Jacob Zuma said he released Jacob Zuma from hospital because he feared that another unrest was going to broke out had anything happened to Zuma's health while he was in prison. Jacob Zuma's is 79 years old.
