Jacob zuma has been fighting allegation of corruption. Today he has been convicted to imprisonment of 15 years. Zuma faced many allegation ranging from mass graft and rape case. It is a big blow to the former head of state
The accused was president from 2009 to 2018 when he resigned over massive graft claims. Since then Ramaphosa has been the president of South Africa. Zuma has been in political scenes for many years though faced with many undoings . This has really affected his reputation in the society
This ruling will serve as a warning to many greedy African leaders out there. Head of state is expected to portray morals of high standard.
We urge our leaders to always uphold integrity when serving citizens or else their days are numbered like those of Zuma. This shows greed and bad ethics among the most trusted people in the society.
we congratulate south Africa Justice system for delivering landmark ruling in the continent
