Zuma charged

"We have decided to bring criminal charges against former deputy president Jacob Zuma, among them two counts of corruption." - NPA spokesperson Makhosini Nkosi.

Zuma gets his day in court, and South Africa gets months of continued media frenzy. Be warned, this may open a can of corruption worms. Zuma will not go down without a fight, and we can expect significant mud-slinging in the coming months.
