Zuma to Remain in Hospital Indefinitely Even After Surgery

South Africa’s Correctional services say they are unsure about a discharge date for former president Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma who was jailed in the Estcourt Correctional Centre last month for ignoring a court order that compelled him to appear before the State Capture Inquiry.

Department spokesperson, Singabakho Nxumalo said Zuma, who was admitted to an outside hospital earlier this month had a surgical procedure on Saturday and has other procedures planned.

The former President is currently serving a 15-month prison sentence in the Estcourt Correctional Centre in KwaZulu-Natal for contempt of court.

Nxumalo stated that as inmates are placed in correctional centres, the state has a responsibility and duty to care for them in a manner that does not violate or compromise their constitutional rights, which include access to health care.
