Police Still Under Order To Arrest Zuma – Legal Experts

Former president Jacob Zuma has missed the Constitutional court deadline to hand himself over to authorities.

According to leading legal opinion, police remain under order to arrest him by Wednesday. 

On Saturday, the apex court agreed to hear Zuma’s application next week to rescind the order that he be jailed for 15 months.

Former president Jacob Zuma is hoping the Constitutional Court will withdraw and amend the order that he be imprisoned. This comes after the apex court agreed to hear Zuma’s rescission application virtually on 12 July 2021.

Ordinarily, in court proceedings, when a matter is on appeal, the order being challenged is suspended. 

But Zuma has applied for the order to be rescinded.
