 Zuma corruption case dismissal adjourned
Text size Aa Aa

A decision on a bid by the leader of South Africa’s ruling party, Jacob Zuma, to have corruption charges against him dismissed has been adjourned.

A judge said he will decide in September whether the case should go to trial.

The case could stop Zuma becoming president in an election next year that his African National Congress party is almost certain to win.

Zuma denies the charges of corruption, fraud, money-laundeering and racketeering but said he would step down if convicted.
