Zuma loses appeal to stop restart of corruption charges against him

President Jacob Zuma of South Africa

A South African court has dismissed an appeal by President Jacob Zuma challenging the reinstatement of corruption charges against him

Mr Zuma and other government officials have been accused of taking kickbacks from the purchase of fighter jets, patrol boats and other arms.

Charges were first brought against Mr Zuma in 2005 but dropped by prosecutors in 2009.

However, last year the High Court in Pretoria ruled that he should face the accusations.

Mr Zuma went on to lodge a challenge with the Supreme Court of Appeal to these charges being reinstated.

The President has always insisted he is innocent.
