ANC president Jacob Zuma has vowed that he will fight tooth-and-nail to have corruption charges against him are dropped.
Addressing thousands of ANC supporters in Pietermaritzburg yesterday, shortly after the high court postponed his case, Zuma said he was going to explore all avenues available to see the charges against him permanently dropped.
Zuma is facing charges of corruption, money-laundering and racketeering, emanating from a multi-billion rand arms deal that saw his former financial advisor, Schabir Shaik, convicted to 15 years.
Zuma told ANC, SACP and Cosatu supporters: "I will fight to the end because I strongly believe that I have been unfairly treated.
"My rights have been violated. For nearly 10 years now, I am being investigated and this is not the way one should be treated.
"I am going to continue fighting for justice," he said. - Canaan Mdletshe
