The Freedom Front Plus said that the judgment against Zuma was a setback, but would not eliminate him from the ANC's leadership race.
"Because the court's decision dealt with technical legal issues, there is no final judgment on the merits of the case against him," said party leader Pieter Mulder.
He said that after seven years of investigations , there was still no clarity .
"It is an untenable situation for Zuma and a confusing issue for the general public. "The public and the ANC congress delegates cannot be blamed if they can no longer distinguish between which parts of this saga are political and which are legal issues." - Sapa
