Jacob Zuma’s stay of arrest bid fails

Former President Jacob Zuma’s bid to stay his arrest has been dismissed by the Pietermaritzburg High Court on Friday.

The former president brought the application before the court on Tuesday, arguing that his arrest should be stayed until the Constitutional Court hears his rescission application next Monday.

The court had sentenced him to 15 months behind bars for being in contempt of court after he failed to appear before the state capture inquiry.

Zuma has been in prison since Wednesday night.
