JOHANNESBURG - The corruption trial of former President Jacob Zuma resumes in the Pietermaritzburg High Court.

The former president was set to appear before the court on Tuesday morning but was hospitalised for a routine check-up last week.

His legal team said that they would apply virtually to postpone his arms deal corruption case.

Zuma is currently serving a 15-month jail term at the Estcourt Correctional Services facility for contempt of court for failing to appear before the state capture commission of inquiry.
