This followed the Supreme Court of Appeal overturning the 2009 ruling, which withdrew all charges against the former head of state.

Briefly.co.za reported earlier Zuma would be facing 18 charges of fraud, corruption and money laundering, which is connected to 783 payments from his former advisor Shabir Shaik.

The announcement came after five senior state prosecutors examined Zuma's reasons why he should not be prosecuted, but apparently his reasons were not good enough.
