The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) plans to proceed with criminal charges against former deputy president Jacob Zuma, spokesperson Makhosini Nkosi said on Monday.
"This afternoon advocate (Vusi) Pikoli informed (former) deputy president (Jacob) Zuma that he has decided to bring criminal charges against his person. Such charges will be constituted by, among others, two counts of corruption.
"Mr Zuma will in due course be informed of the date, time and place where he will have to avail himself at court to face these charges," Nkosi said.
Zuma would not be physically arrested but would be ordered to appear in court later this week in Durban.
The charges were informed by Judge Hilary Squires's finding that Durban businessman Schabir Shaik was guilty on charges of fraud and corruption. Shaik acted as Zuma's financial adviser.
