Arrest Warrant Issued for Former President Zuma in South Africa

A lack of proper evidence showing why Jacob Zuma did not attend his corruption trial led to a warrant of arrest issued against the embattled former head of state. While the warrant was issued byJudge Dhaya Pillay, the execution thereof has been stayed until May 6, when Zuma is expected to appear in court again. This means the former number one will not be cuffed by police and brought before court by force.
