South Africa’s Jailed Ex-President Zuma Undergoes Surgery

South Africa’s jailed former President Jacob Zuma has undergone surgery and remains in hospital, prison officials say.

The 79-year-old is due to have other procedures in the coming days, Singabakho Nxumalo, the correctional services department spokesperson, has said.

There has been no word on the nature of the operations or likely discharge date.

Zuma began serving a 15-month sentence in July for contempt of court for failing to appear at an inquiry looking into allegations of corruption during his 2009-2018 presidency.

His admission to hospital delayed the start of a separate corruption trial last week.

It is linked a $5bn (£3bn) arms deal in the 1990s and Zuma says the case against him is politically motivated.

He has pleaded not guilty to all the 16 counts of racketeering, corruption, fraud, tax evasion and money laundering.
