Jacob Zuma’s Family Insist Former President Is Not Going To Jail

Zondo Commission, to have former president Jacob Zuma jailed for two years

South Africa, Durban – Zuma’s family has insisted that Zuma will not be sitting in a holding cell.

This was said by one of Zuma’s sons, Edward Zuma, on Tuesday during an interview with Independent Media, which wanted some clarifications regarding a Zulu traditional ritual held at Zuma’s home, in Nkandla, on Saturday afternoon.

According to reports, Pictures of the behind-closed-doors traditional ritual were leaked, showing Zuma carrying a spear and a knobkerrie inside a kraal, there was speculation that the former president held it to appease his ancestors and ask for their protection, as he braces himself to be jailed.

Meanwhile, this comes as the Constitutional Court edges closer to handing down judgment on the urgent application brought by the Zondo Commission, to have former president Jacob Zuma jailed for two years for defying its summons

However, his son Edward said the traditional ceremony, which was attended by two chiefs of the vast Zuma clan (Inkosi Siphiwe Zuma of Mpendle and Bhekumuzi Zuma of Nkandla), had nothing to do with any political developments around the former president.
