Cyril Ramaphosa Vs Jacob Zuma

Former president Jacob Zuma accused prosecutor advocate Billy Downer and News24 journalist Karyn Maughan of allegedly leaking Zuma's confidential medical information during his arms deal trial. Both Downer and Maughan have lodged applications to have the private prosecutions declared an abuse of court processes. Zuma then began a private prosecution against President Cyril Ramaphosa, who he claims is guilty of criminal wrongdoing because Ramaphosa failed to take action against Downer. He claims Ramaphosa was an 'accessory after the fact.' Ramaphosa's legal team successfully won an interdict that the president should not be dragged into court for what it described as an illegal prosecution Zuma.
