Zuma fails in court challenge over corruption case

South Africa’s former President Jacob Zuma has failed in his legal attempt to get a decision on whether or not he should face trial for corruption taken to the Supreme Court.

Last month, the High Court in Pietermaritzburg ruled that he should go on trial on charges relating to an arms deal made in the 1990s.

He denies the charges.

Mr Zuma’s lawyers wanted to challenge that decision saying that the Supreme Court could reach a different decision, but the High Court has just dismissed that attempt.
