- The NPA (National Prosecuting Authority) won't charge anyone with allegedly trying to murder former president, Jacob Zuma
- It was alleged that one of his wives, Nompumelelo Ntuli-Zuma, tried to poison him in 2014
- However, no evidence was found and the case can't be pursued
The National Prosecuting Authority chose not to prosecute anyone for allegedly poisoning Jacob Zuma.
There was no evidence to be found and the case could not be pursued, Business Day reported.
Advocate Elaine Zungu, the acting KwaZulu-Natal director of public prosecutions wrote a letter to the Hawks stating the case could not be investigated due to lack of evidence and the fact that Zuma did not give a statement on the 'poisoning' attempt.
In 2015, MaNtuli was banned from Zuma's homestead, Nkandla, when it was alleged she tried to murder her husband, as reported by News24.
IOL News reports that the decision by the NPA now puts to rest this 5-year-old investigation.
It appears that MaNtuli now wants to take civil action against the police.
