Court gives Zuma chance to appeal prison return ruling


The High Court in South Africa has ruled that the former president be allowed to appeal a decision setting aside medical parole.

Last week it was decided he should return to jail.

Former South African president Jacob Zuma has been granted leave to appeal last week’s court decision which set aside his medical parole.

Judge Elias Matojane said the former president’s ill health and age should be taken into consideration.

Last week the Gauteng High Court in Pretoria ruled that a prior decision to medical grounds was “unlawful.”

Zuma’s legal team are appealing last weeks ruling along with the country’s department of correctional services.
