(SOUTH AFRICA) Court Report: Former President Jacob Zuma has been sentenced to 15-months after he pleaded not guilty #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.29: Mr Zuma’s time in power, which ended in 2018, was dogged by graft allegations: Businessmen were accused of conspiring with politicians to influence the decision-making process.

South Africa’s top court sentences ex-President Jacob Zuma as pleads not guilty over ‘corrupt’ arms deal and came after the Constitutional Court found him guilty of contempt after defying the court’s order to appear at an inquiry into corruption while he was president.

The former president made one appearance at the inquiry into what has become known as “state capture” but then refused to appear subsequently.

The inquiry – headed by Justice Raymond Zondo – asked the Constitutional Court to intervene.

It is not clear if Mr Zuma will now be arrested.

In a separate legal matter, Mr Zuma pleaded not guilty last month in his corruption trial involving a $5bn (£3bn) arms deal from the 1990s.
