Pietermaritzburg - A bullish Jacob Zuma has emerged out of a four-day legal battle with the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) to warn those itching for his prosecution that they will regret harbouring those wishes as people they hold in high regard may emerge as the corrupt ones who benefited from the controversial arms purchase deal.
Speaking in isiZulu to his over 3 000 supporters outside the Pietermaritzburg High Court on Friday afternoon, an occasionally sarcastic Zuma said his prosecution "may yield another Bosasa" where people who are thought to be holy might be implicated.
The former president insisted that he cannot be prosecuted as he has done nothing wrong, claiming that this case is politically motivated.
He added for over ten years, many people have insulted him, calling him a thief despite the fact that they have failed to produce evidence to substantiate their comments.
"This case may implicate other people while you were expecting Zuma, who is said to have pocketed massive sums. Let them proceed with the prosecution if they want to but I know for a fact that I haven't done anything wrong and while some politicians may think they are safe, if the case proceeds, they may find themselves inside the dock having to provide answers," he said.
