Former president Jacob Zuma has highlighted the importance of maintaining his health. The embattled politician returned to South Africa on Saturday, where he was greeted by throngs of supporters.
Jacob Zuma says that he isn't fearful of going to court or even ending up in jail after returning to South Africa from Cuba.
Briefly.co.za reported that the former president had been met by a large crowd of supporters after coming home from receiving medical treatment overseas.
Zuma has highlighted his health a priority in the face of his numerous legal challenges:
“I’ve taken a decision that my life is important. It’s important that I get medical attention. So that those waiting for me in the courts and elsewhere can find me in good health.”
ANC veteran Carl Niehaus rallied support for the arrival of the politician, calling on followers to make sure he is warmly received.
Niehaus expressed his happiness that Msholozi has returned home, commenting that:
"So happy that Jacob Zuma is back home! Msholozi is us, we are Msholozi"
Despite the cheerful reception, Zuma will soon be facing appearances at the State Capture Inquiry and the High Court where he will face charges of corruption for his involvement in the Thales arms deal controversy.
