South Africa’s ex-president Zuma released from Correctional Services system
Former South African president Jacob Zuma has been released from the system of Correctional Services, the government department said Friday.
Zuma failed to appear at a corruption inquiry led by Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo in February 2021. For this, South Africa’s constitutional court ruled he was in contempt of court and ordered jailed for 15 months.
The inquiry was examining allegations of high-level graft during Zuma’s period in power from 2009-2018. Zuma denies wrongdoing.
