One of Zuma's strong allies, UmKhonto weSizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA) president Kebby Maphatsoe, said they were going to camp outside court in support of Zuma.
"Even families support each other when one of their own goes to court.
"We must go and give courage to one of our comrades," Maphatsoe said.
He said Zuma was an MKMVA member.
"We rallied behind comrade Zuma for a very long time."
Zuma's son Edward would only say "wait for my personal statement soon, chief" when approached for comment yesterday.
NPA spokesman Luvuyo Mfaku said the Director of Public Prosecutions in KwaZulu-Natal, Moipone Noko, would engage Zuma's lawyers about a suitable date for his court appearance.
