A new legal team was appointed by Jacob Zuma to bear his case in the desperate attempt to escape prosecution for alleged corruption. However, the man who was apparently on the verge of death and then released from prison, but who has enjoyed a great life, Schabir Shaik, was Zuma’s financial adviser, is not regarded as one that will be prosecuted for Zuma’s corruption.

However, experts believe that Zuma’s new team of legal representatives will struggle to prove him innocent, and will also fail to fulfill Zuma’s desire to end the prosecution against him.

The corruption case against the former ANC president is already over a decade old, and already begun in 2003 when he was vice president of the Mbeki regime.

Zuma has always been accused of receiving Shaik’s bribe at the time, and has resulted in Shaik landing in jail. He was released on “parole” for serious health reasons, and apparently has only a short time to live – but after many years the time is still very short.
