A doctor’s note submitted in support of Jacob Zuma has left the prosecution feeling perplexed this week. The ongoing corruption trial has been pushed back to September, as the former president continues to receive hospital care.
However, the contents of the letter have been branded ‘vague and confusing’. The medical memo informs the court that Jacob Zuma is still dealing with the after-effects of a traumatic injury, suffered some 18 months ago. However, no further details are given about why the 79-year-old could not attend court on Tuesday.
