Pretoria court declines to drop graft charges against Zuma

Pretoria, April 29 (IANS) A South African court on Friday here set aside a 2009 decision by the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) to drop corruption charges against President Jacob Zuma.

The decision by NPA’s former head Mokotedi Mpshe was “irrational” as he acted “alone and impulsively”, Xinhua news agency cited the court as ruling.

Mpshe should have followed the legal processes on emergence of the “spy tapes” and allow the courts to decide if the charges should have been withdrawn, Judge Aubrey Ledwaba said.
