Judgement has been reserved in former President Jacob Zuma’s contempt of court case. The outcome of the judgement will be handed down on Friday in the Pietermaritzburg High Court.
This, after Advocate Dali Mpofu representing Zuma, and the Zondo Commission’s lawyer Tembeka Ngcukaitobi battled it out in court, to try and convince it that it has the jurisdiction to rule on an order from the Constitutional Court.
Zuma remains a free man until judgement has been handed down. Last week, the apex court sentenced Zuma to 15 months in jail for being in contempt of court. Zuma was meant to hand himself over to the police on Sunday but evaded arrest in the 11th hour.
