The Constitutional Court has made a decision that for now it will not hear an appeal from the National Prosecuting Authority on Jacob Zuma's corruption charges.
Earlier this year the High Court in Pretoria ruled that the decision to withdraw the corruption charges against Zuma in 2009 was wrong.
EWN reporter Barry Bateman says this decision by the Concourt has narrowed down the options for the NPA and President Zuma.
After the ruling by the Gauteng High Court, both Zuma and the NPA applied for leave to appeal and three judges reaffirmed the earlier decision that the withdrawal of the charges against Zuma was irrational.
Bateman says it is now up to the Supreme Court of Appeal to decide on whether they will hear Jacob Zuma's appeal.
He says if the SCA refuses to hear the appeal, the NPA could be forced to reinstate the charges, meaning Jacob Zuma will become an accused in the matter.
