    BREAKING: Zuma must go back to jail as his medical parole was unlawful

    Breaking news! The Supreme Court of Appeal ruled that Jacob Zuma must go back to jail as his medical parole was unlawful.

    BREAKING NEWS JUST IN – ZUMA MUST GO BACK TO JAIL

    The appeal was raised against a High Court decision setting aside a decision to release the former president on medical parole.

    Zuma’s lawyers argued that sending him back to jail would be tantamount to imposing a double sentence.

    THE SCA RULED HIS MEDICAL PAROLE WAS UNLAWFUL

    Jacob G Zuma Foundation spokesperson Mzwanele Manyi reportedly said they were confident ahead of the court’s decision earlier on Monday.

    “The Foundation is expecting that justice will be carried out for Matojane to even hint that the period President Zuma spent outside must be discounted, and he must serve that time in jail. When you are in parol, you are still under the supervision of the correctional services, so why would Matojane think you are on holiday?.”

    Zuma served less than two months of his prison term.

    ZUMA HAD SERVED LESS THAT TWO MONTHS OF HIS PRISON TERM

    The Constitutional Court sentenced Zuma to 15 months imprisonment for being in contempt of court. This followed the former president breaching the apex court’s order for him to appear before the State Capture Commission after it summoned him.

    Zuma was imprisoned at the Escourt Correctional Services Facility. He was expected to serve his 15 months behind bars – but didn’t. Zuma was released on medical parole by former Correctional Services commissioner Arthur Fraser.

    This was under two months of Zuma in prison and went against the Medical Parole Advisory Board’s recommendation. Judge Elias Matojane stated that Zuma’s case needed the SCA’s attention.
