SA lawyer Richard Spoor feels for Jacob Zuma: “He deserves a pardon”

In a previous post regarding Spoor, Briefly News posted that a lawyer named Richard Spoor ruffled many feathers and has many people nodding in agreement after he shared a post about Jacob Zuma and his recently-decided 15-month jail sentence.

"Jacob Zuma deserves a pardon. He is 78 years old and has been poorly advised, mainly by people who sought only to exploit him for their own ends. 15 months in prison is like a death sentence for him. It is very harsh. Cyril must act.
"Carl Niehaus, Schabir Shaik, Julius Malema, Atul Gupta and Dali Mpofu are fine examples of self-interested exploitation of Jacob Zuma. Add to that all the RET fanboys who traded on their proximity to him. See, M Gigaba and a dozen other cabinet ministers and premiers," the post reads.
