Former South African president, Jacob Zuma, sentenced to 15 months in prison

Former South African president, Jacob Zuma, has been sentenced to 15 months in prison for contempt of court.

Judge Sisi Khampepe said Zuma was found guilty of contempt of court following his refusal to appear before a graft panel.

Recall that the 79-year-old Zuma was forced to step down as president in 2018 over corruption allegations. The former president had defied an order by the constitutional court in January to appear at an inquiry into corruption while he was president.
