Zuma, 77, appeared at the High Court in Pietermaritzburg in eastern KwaZulu-Natal province Monday on charges of receiving bribes when the government purchased arms in 1999.

Zuma was South Africa’s president from 2009 until 2018, when he was forced to resign by his ruling African National Congress party amid persistent allegations of corruption.
