Ex-president Jacob Zuma is nothing but determined and has shown no signs of accepting the numerous rulings against him.

Briefly.co.za reported that the embattled ANC veteran's appeal application was rejected, with costs, in the KwaZulu-Natal High Court on Friday.

Nevertheless, his legal team revealed that they would be pursuing yet another application, this time in the Supreme Court of Appeal.

The rulings are in response to Msholozi's bid to obtain a permanent stay in the prosecution against him in the Thales scandal, which has him facing corruption and fraud charges.

eNCA spoke to law expert Mpumelelo Zikalala, who commented on the latest development:

“He’ll say to them your colleagues in the Pietermaritzburg High Court have denied me this appeal. I believe that the chances of success are greater, please look at my papers and if you so believe, as I believe, please allow me to argue in front of you,” said legal expert."
