    Former President Jacob Zuma To Face Charge

    Former President Jacob Zuma enjoys the taste of classical white wines during the heights of his rein . 
    South African chief prosecutor Shaun Abrahams has announced that former President Zuma will face 16 charges, including racketeering, fraud and money laundering. The corruption cases allegedly occurred before and during his political tenner as an South African leader include $2.5bn arm deal made in the 1990s. Zuma was first charged with corruption in 2005 when his financial adviser was jailed on fraud and corruption charges. "After consideration of the matter, I am of the view that there are reasonable prospects of successful prosecution of Mr Zuma on the charges listed in the indictment," Shaun Abrahams, the chief prosecutor, said. Abrahams said a trial is an appropriate place to settle the matter. 

    The chief prosecutor thinks there are "reasonable prospects of a successful prosecution". Zuma went to trial in, 2006 but the case stalled when the prosecution said it was unable to continue more than a year after he had been charged. The case was controversially dropped by the National Prosecuting Authority in 2009, shortly before Zuma won the presidency. Zuma was forced to resign in February by his ruling African National Congress (ANC) party. He was accused of corruption numerous times during his nine-year presidency but has always maintained his innocence.
