BREAKING NEWS: South Africa’s High Court orders former president Jacob Zuma back to prison

The Gauteng High Court in Pretoria has ruled that former National Commissioner of Correctional Services Arthur Fraser’s decision to place former president Jacob Zuma on medical parole was unlawful – and ordered that he should return to jail.

“It is declared that the time [Zuma] was out of jail on medical parole should not be counted for the fulfilment of [Zuma’s] sentence of 15 months imposed by the Constitutional Court,” the court ruled on Wednesday morning.

Zuma and the national commissioner were ordered to pay the costs of the medical parole challenge.

However, social media is going crazy because of Zuma. Some think its a political stand. There are mixed reactions. Here are some of the comments from twitter users.

“they wanted him out because of votes..now we are done voting…they want him back in jail.our government is nonsense. https://t.co/YHYHj0ozgLOb”

“I think people who should be serving terms in prison for community crimes are enablers of apartheid policies, not J Zuma for contempt of court that was not even properly and procedurally prosecuted”

“Ag shem Zuma wa batho. He might have made bad things ,the man is old now,can’t the law let the poor old man live in peace now.we are tired of hearing Zuma this Zuma that.the man is old for god sake”

“Problem with zuma he doesn’t want to stay away from politics”

“That I see politics are his lifestyle. the law should at least consider his age,we tired of hearing Zuma name.this is going to cause another chaos in the country and don’t want that”

“The problem is he doesn’t want peace, he keeps on entering political space, holding welcome party, visiting casinos for political meetings.

I wish he could leave politics and enjoy his pension but aii.”..
