Jacob Zuma Vs State Advocate Billy Downer

Judge Nkosinathi Chili is expected to chart the way forward in the former President Jacob Zuma's attempted private prosecution of state prosecutor Advocate Billy Downer and journalist Karyn Maughan in the Pietermaritzburg High Court. Zuma has accused Downer - who is the lead prosecutor in the former president's corruption trial - of leaking a confidential doctor's letter to Maughan. The court earlier granted an urgent order that Downer and Maughan had brought - that Zuma's private prosecution be halted.
