SA youth want Zuma back in court - survey
At least 66 percent of respondents said President Jacob Zumas corruption charges should be reinstated.
CAPE TOWN - A new survey shows that two thirds of South African youths want President Jacob Zuma to return to court to face previously dropped corruption charges.
The survey was conducted by research firm Pondering Panda.
A total of 66 percent of the more than 3,000 respondents indicated the charges should be reinstated.
Pondering Panda's Shirley Wakefield says, We also saw that sympathy for Zuma was strongest in KwaZulu-Natal, where only 47 percent of respondents were in favour of charging him again.
Former ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema has also been calling for the charges to be reinstated.
In 2009, the National Prosecuting Authority dropped the corruption charges against the president.
Meanwhile, Zuma is widely expected to be nominated for second term during Decembers ANC elective conference in Mangaung.
