This could be the first of several legal battles faced by Zuma who was recently forced by the ANC to resign. He is expected to be the central focus of an upcoming commission of inquiry into state capture.

Zuma has been replaced as South Africa’s President by Cyril Ramaphosa, who was elected in December as the president of the African National Congress.
