The High Court in Pietermaritzburg has issued a warrant for his arrest after he failed to appear in the dock, but it's stayed until his next scheduled appearance in May.

Zuma's legal team described the issuing of the warrant as vindictive and persecution of the former head of state.

“We will consider the reasoning of the judge, the basis upon which a warrant was issued and we will take it from there", said Zuma's attorney Daniel Mantsha.
