South Africa: Jacob Zuma seeks public donations for his legal fight

South African former president Jacob Zuma has launched a call to the public to donate funds to support his trial on corruption allegations.

A post on his foundation’s official Twitter page asks South Africans and the world to “lend a helping hand” in donations to help cover the legal fees.

Zuma has been serving a 15-month sentence since July for contempt of court for failing to appear at an inquiry on corruption allegations against him.
