Former South African President Jacob Zuma appeared in Pietermaritzburg High Court on Tuesday to face corruption, money laundering and racketeering charges related to the controversial multibillion-rand arms deal signed in the late ‘90s.

The experts and analysts suggest the ex-national leader will lodge another appeal in an attempt to obtain a permanent stay of prosecution.

“I’m pretty sure that they are of the belief that a different judge will come to a different conclusion, so we may see an instance maybe once we get to court on Tuesday,” Mpumelelo Zikalala of Zikalala Attorneys advised.

Previously, Zuma asked the court to drop the charges insisting they were politically motivated.
