Former president Jacob Zuma fails to meet requirements in his application to set aside his contempt order and prison sentence

Zuma hadasked the court to set asideboth the contempt order and his 15-month prison sentence, meted out after he failed to respect a directive to appear at the Zondo commission probing state capture.The former president pleaded with the court to “relook its decision and to merely reassess whether it has acted within the constitution or, erroneously, beyond the powers vested in the court by the constitution”.

Handing down judgment, Khampepe said: “The conclusion of the majority of the constitutional court reaches that this application falls to be dismissed with costs.”Zuma’s appeal to broaden the apex court’s ground of rescission — should his not reach the requirements — had the opposite outcome. 

The former president submitted that if he failed to establish the requirements for rescission the constitutional court should expand the meaning of a rescindable order.Khampepe said the court must “do the opposite” because “the very notion rescinding a court order is an affront to the rule that orders, especially those of the apex court that are final”. headtopics.com

She added that “the interest of justice requires the constitutional court to protect the principle of finality in litigation” otherwise the administration of justice would be “compromised by chaos”. Zuma is out of jail on medical parole for an undisclosed condition after serving just under two months of his 15 month sentence.

I want to use this medium to thank Mr tyron_robert7 for making me benefit from his platform in just after 7days I got my profits in full payment without no extra fee. All thanks to you tyron_robert7 We know you are all captured, media, Courts, judges. You don't represent the majority, you only pushing the interests of the minority who funds you to write kak articles. You lost yourselves. I feel sorry for you. Zuma is the president of the people, and that hurts you deep.

this could have been the poster-child that you don't need a degree to know that there are hungry, homeless, desperate citizens that need you to look after them if you are a president of a country... dololo... and of course he is a good person. just made a wrong turn or two here. Constitutional court judges protected themselves. That's how your headline should be. Zuma was sentenced without trail that's known fact nothing more or less.

Zuma is suffering from Corrupt -a- Litus. A common ANC disease caused by corruption and theft. This disease can be easily cured by spending 15 years in jail in an orange overall. This disease is easily preventable by not being allowed in a position in government.
