Newsflash: SCA rules against Zuma and NPA in spy tapes appeal

Zuma and the NPA had asked for leave to appeal a judgment of the Gauteng North High Court past year, which ruled in favour of the Democratic Alliance (DA), setting aside the 2009 decision by the NPA's then National Director of Public Prosecution, Mokotedi Mpshe, to discontinue the corruption case against Zuma.

The judgment was handed down in Bloemfontein on Friday morning.

The court was again strident in its criticism of the NPA, saying the timing of the indictment was irrelevant to the merits of the case against Zuma.

And the former Hull City playmaker is confident that with the mixture of both young and experienced players in the squad they could aim higher than their previous performance where they exited the tournament in the second round. "I am sure you will have a great trip there".

State prosecutors set aside the charges in April 2009, paving the way for Zuma - who has faced and denied numerous corruption allegations made since then - to run for president later that year.

Leach said that it was clear that Deputy National Director of Public Prosecutions Willie Hofmeyr and Mpshe were "straining to find justification" for discontinuing the prosecution.

Leach says that in any event, Mpshe's decision stood to be set aside.

Meanwhile, some community members have organized their own efforts to find the little girl. "I can't say anything about that". It's been six days since three-year-old Sherin Mathews went missing Saturday morning as many questions left unanswered.

This means the NPA should immediately reinstate charges of fraud and corruption against Zuma.

At the hearing, Kemp said "what then must happen is that the representations would have to be considered by the NPA, because they have never been". "There is no reason why Zuma should not be prosecuted".

When the parties argued the case three weeks ago, they conceded that Mpshe had relied on an incorrect provision in law to base his decision on. The opposition Democratic Alliance asked the court to order holding an immediate trial.
