Zuma: I am not scared of jail

The Myanmar Times - - World -

South Africa’s em­bat­tled Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma put on a brave face at his first pub­lic ap­pear­ance since the re­lease of fresh ev­i­dence of al­leged cor­rup­tion at the top of the ANC govern­ment. “I have spent a lot of time in jail. I am not scared of jail. I have been there,” said Mr Zuma, who un­der apartheid was jailed for 10 years on Robben Is­land with Nel­son Man­dela. Dur­ing a speech to hun­dreds of Africa Na­tional Congress sup­port­ers in Dumbe, a small town in his Kwazulu-Na­tal prov­ince, Mr Zuma ac­cused the op­po­si­tion of “us­ing the courts” to scare the ANC.
