[LISTEN] Bongani Bingwa's warning to Jacob Zuma

The Ides of March is a day on the Roman calendar that corresponds with March 15. It was marked by several religious observances and was notable for the Romans as a deadline for settling debts.

In 44 BC, it became notorious as the date when Julius Caesar was assassinated. The death of Caesar made the Ides of March a turning point in Roman history as one of the events that marked the transition from the historical period known as the Roman Republic to the Roman Empire.

Bongani Bingwa references the Shakespearean play Caesar to warn former president Zuma as the country waits to hear if NPA head Shaun Abrahams will reinstate charges against him.

For years former president Jacob Zuma has brushed aside all attempts to hold him accountable for many issues - from Nkandla to the Public Protector's report - the issues are well known and too many to mention.
