Although it is debatable that Jacob Zuma ever left the country in the first place, the former president has returned home.

Briefly.co.za reported that a Sunday World report had indicated Msholozi had traveled to a 'secret hospital' seeking medical treatment.

Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo reportedly received a letter from the politician's legal team indicating that Zuma had left the country.

Journalist Karyn Maughan had commented that the ex-president had returned, referring questions over his absence to his silent spokesperson.

The initial report had claimed the former statesman distrusted local doctors, both to keep a lip on his treatment and with their medical skills.

The Citizen reports that Zuma is allegedly suffering from memory issues and while it might simply be old age, the politician still has plenty to answer for at the State Capture Inquiry.

His long-awaited corruption trial is also set to begin at the start of the new year after over a decade's worth of delays.
