Ex-South Africa President, Jacob Zuma loses bid to overturn arrest JACOB-ZUMA



Ex-South African president Jacob Zuma has lost a bid to overturn his arrest for contempt, days after turning himself in for a 15-month jail term.

Recall that for refusing to give evidence at an inquiry into corruption during his nine years in office from 2009.

Following the development, he turned himself in on Wednesday but challenged his sentence.

However, the Pietermaritzburg high court on Friday ruled that Zuma must stay in jail until that hearing is concluded.

"Mr. Zuma's concerns about his health are not supported by any evidence.

"The application is dismissed," the court judge said.
