While stressing that Zuma “as a former Head of State, does not and cannot condone” the eight days of deadly violence and looting that followed him being jailed for refusing to comply with a Constitutional Court order that he appear before the State Capture Inquiry, Jacob Zuma’s lawyers have urged Judge Piet Koen to be “aware” of the deadly unrest that followed the former president’s imprisonment for contempt when he decides whether to postpone his long-awaited corruption trial. News24 reports that on Sunday, the Zuma Foundation also announced that Zuma would pursue a private prosecution against lead prosecutor Billy Downer.
