South African should know on Friday whether former president Jacob Zuma will face any charges.
A total of 783 financial transactions involving Zuma make up 18 charges including fraud and corruption.
On Wednesday, the Constitutional Court dismissed the urgent bid by the Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution (Casac) to block the head of the National Prosecution Authority (NPA) Shaun Abrahams from announcing his decision.
Abrahams says he now wants to inform Zuma first, before announcing his final decision. Lawson Naidoo, Casac executive secretary, speaking to Ray White on The Midday Report, said they were disappointed by the decision of the court, but respect it.
The court didnt deal with the merits of the case. We still believe that its in appropriate for advocate Abrahams to take a decision regarding these charges against Jacob Zuma given his complicity in delaying this matter for such a long period of time now.— Lawson Naidoo, Casac executive secretary
Naidoo said for the longest period, Abrahams supported Zuma's bid to delay his day in court and it is now astounding for Abrahams to be in a rush to make such an announcement.
