Jacob Zuma Vs State Advocate Billy Downer

Former president Jacob Zuma's legal team are trying to get State Advocate Billy Downer removed from the arms deal corruption case that Zuma is facing. Judge Nkosinathi Chili has taken over from Judge Piet Koen after he announced his recusal from the case because of comments he made in a previous failed bid aimed at removing Downer. Zuma's application for Downer's removal from the case is expected to be based on the fact that the former president has instituted a private prosecution against the prosecutor for allegedly illegally 'leaking' confidential medical information to the press.
