“Arresting Zuma is nothing but political revenge” – EFF tells Pretoria based high court

Published

The Economic Freedom Fighters has censure the ruling of Pretoria based high court on their decision to put the former South African president Jacob Zuma back to prison.

They said the idea is political revenge and malicious use of law.

The court ordered the former president to go back to jail to complete his 15 months sentence he was given during his trial at the court.

following the latest development, EFF spokesperson Vuyani Pambo told SABC News there was a “clear mandate to punish as opposed to correct”.

“Arresting Zuma is nothing but political revenge. If the law must serve the purpose of rehabilitation or bringing order to society, what is the purpose of arresting Zuma again?

“Why is Zuma a threat to society, or what need is there to rehabilitate him? It’s malicious use of the law. The point is that he must be corrected and in this case, it looks like there is a clear mandate to punish as opposed to correct,” said Pambo.
