The Pietermaritzburg High Court on Monday postponed former president Jacob Zuma’s corruption case to next month.
Zuma, who was not in court on Monday, is facing charges in connection with his role in the country’s arms deal in the 90s.
Zuma’s trial was supposed to have begun at the beginning of the year but was delayed due to an application by Zuma to have the lead prosecutor, Billy Downer, removed from the case.
The former president’s application is currently before the Constitutional Court.
Judge Piet Koen set September 17, as a holding date pending the finalisation of Zuma’s Constitutional Court application.
