Phosa weighs in on Zuma case

Observer on Saturday - - News - .eNCA

- Pres­i­den­tial hope­ful Matthews Phosa has weighed in on Thurs­day’s s court pro­ceed­ings when Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma's lawyers ad­mit­ted it was ir­ra­tional to with­draw the cor­rup­tion charges against him.

“I think what hap­pened today for me as a lawyer is quite normal. Jus­tice is tak­ing its course. What should hap­pen away from pol­i­tics and emo­tions is that Kemp J Kemp must do those rep­re­sen­ta­tions to the NPA and we must quickly move to a point where a pris­oner has his day in court and jus­tice is done.

"Jus­tice de­layed is jus­tice not done. This mat­ter has been hang­ing for nine years and more. I would hate a sit­u­a­tion where the pres­i­dent is be­ing pur­sued into re­tire­ment. "The ques­tion is to pros­e­cute or not to pros­e­cute.
