• 'Litigious skullduggery': Zuma’s bid for rescission dismissed with costs

    The Constitutional Court dismissed former President Jacob Zuma's rescission application, with costs, on 17 September 2021. After being charged with contempt and sentenced to 15 months in prison, Zuma filed a rescission application, asking the court to review its decision. In the full judgment, Judge Sisi Khampepe stated, “Elected absence, like that of Zuma, constitutes more than litigious skullduggery, which does not have the effect of turning a competently granted order into one erroneously granted.” Meanwhile, Zuma has since been granted medical parole.
