Zuma's Legal Fees - Will South Africans Foot the Bill?

Following questions from opposition parties, President Cyril Ramaphosa has clarified that the presidency will continue to pay the legal fees of former president Jacob Zuma based on a 2006 agreement, unless a court reviews the arrangement and sets it aside. Zuma faces corruption and racketeering charges, among others, and over U.S.$1 million of taxpayers' money has already been spent.
