South Africa's deputy 'would believe' Zuma rape accusation

South Africa's deputy 'would believe' Zuma rape accusation

"It must be one of the most hard decisions that she has to make".

Zuma also stressed how much he was looking forward to the conclusion of his ANC presidential term, quipping that he would arrive at the conference as a president with a "qualification"; that qualification being "outgoing".

"The appointment of Shaun Abrahams as the National Director of Public Prosecutions is reviewed, declared invalid and set aside", Judge President Dunstan Mlambo said at the Pretoria High Court.

It is really unfortunate that ANC presidential hopeful Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa felt the need to use rape as a "political toy", the ANC Youth League in the eThekwini region said on Friday. Having evaluated the totality of the evidence, the court acquitted the President of the rape charges. "The Presidency affirms the rule of law, the independence of the judiciary and the primacy of the courts as the final arbiters in disputes in society".

At first, Ramaphosa said he had to go along with the outcome of the court case in 2006, in which Zuma was acquitted, but he also had to take heed of what Khwezi had said, and that he had sympathy for her.

"I know how hard and painful it is for a woman to garner up the courage to stand up and say "yes, I was raped".

Zuma admitted to having sex with Kuzwayo, who was HIV-positive, but claimed it was consensual.

Ramaphosa is a strong contender for the presidency of the ANC, which will be decided at an elective conference in two weeks.
