Former President Jacob Zuma says courts, judges and law enforcement agencies should do their work objectively and fairly in order to maintain dignity and nobility of their institutions.

Zuma has been speaking to his supporters outside the Pietermaritzburg High Court, where he appeared and pleaded not guilty to 16 charges of corruption with regards to the Arms Deal.

The Pietermaritzburgh High Court has postponed the case against Zuma and French arms manufacturer, Thales, to the 19th of July.

A number of ANC top leaders including the party’s suspended Secretary General, Ace Magashule and KZN’s Provincial Chairperson Sihle Zikalala, have come out to pledge their support to Zuma.

Zikalala has come out to praise Zuma and has publicly given him accolades for having advocated the radical economic transformation policy that has produced many black industrialists.


Magashule says he did not come to court to gunner support for himself, but to support Zuma.
