Jacob Zuma has 16 charges of fraud, graft and racketeering relating to a 1999 purchase of fighter jets, patrol boats and military gear from five European arms firms for 30 billion rand.
Jacob Zuma is accused of accepting bribes totalling four million rand from one of the firms, French defence giant Thales.
Zuma alleged his case has been prejudiced by lengthy delays in bringing the matter to trial and political interference.
Michael Motsoeneng-Bill was recently in conversation with Adv Nqobizitha Mlilo, Criminal Lawyer, Jameson Mawila and Political Analyst, Ntsikelelo Mpulo about the controversy and analysis surrounding Jacob Zuma’s trial since 2003.
