Former president Jacob Zuma has been put on the spotlight after the KZN High Court issued a warrant for his arrest.
Jacob Zuma’s son Edward expressed anger and disgust, agreeing that a plot to destroy his father was underfoot. Edward claims the warrant of arrest painted Zuma as a fugitive, while the politician was ill. Zuma’s son questioned Judge Dhaya Pillay’s decision to doubt the sick note, insisting it had been malicious.
