- Zuma appeared at the Durban High Court on 6 April
- Marlen and Cindy Jordan have worked there as car guards for 16 years
- For them, it was not surprising because they have seen it all before
For two car guards working at Durban High Court, seeing former President Jacob Zuma appear for his corruption trial on 6 April was not surprising at all.
Marlen and Cindy Jordan have worked there fore 16 years, Briefly.co.za learned.
During that period, they have seen thousands being arraigned and found either guilty or innocent, including former Zuma associate Schabir Shaik.
Speaking to Times Live, the husband-and-wife duo said Zuma's appearance proves that everyone is equal before the law. Marlen said:
The thing with this place is that everyone is the same. It doesn’t matter who you are - you can be a president and it doesn’t matter; you are the same in this room. If you have done the crime then there is some time waiting for you.
We have seen all these high-profile cases coming to this court. It’s been so long since we started here and we have seen all these people coming and going.
The couple have no children and live in live in Baker Street in Albert Park. Their only complaint is that high profile cases reduce what they earn because of road closures.
