According to the sources, he had served two months in his 15-month imprisonment after which he was released on medical parole.
In the speech to his grassroots supporters, the former President criticized the court for making unfair accusations and investigations on him.
Furthermore, the African National Congress Boss took it further to criticize the state for oppressing and denying him crucial human rights. He even grumbled that the government of South Africa has gone wrong.
According to the sources, currently, it is not where he is serving his parole.
