Pietermaritzburg - Former president Jacob Zuma was not expected to address his supporters outside Pietermaritzburg High Court on Thursday but organisers were preparing for a large crowd to arrive.
The hearing into his application for a permanent stay of prosecution of his arms-deal related fraud and corruption charges started on Monday and will conclude on Friday.
After listening to lawyers representing Zuma and his co-accused, French arms company Thales, the State on Thursday presented its counter-argument.
Chairperson of the group Radical Economic Transformation Champion Nkosentsha Shezi said he expected people from around to province to gather outside the court in their numbers on Friday.
“I have seen that people from Stanger (North Coast) and Durban are coming here today (on Thursday) and tomorrow (on Friday) to show support for former president Jacob Zuma” said Shezi.
