Former President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma was sentenced to 15 months in prison a couple of weeks ago by the country’s highest court.
Mr. Zumah was jailed after he was found guilty of contempt of court for refusing to honor an order of the court by providing evidence at a corruption inquiry.
Handing down its majority judgment on Tuesday, acting chief justice Sisi Khampepe said the constitutional court had considered giving Zuma (79) a suspended sentence for defying its order.
However, she maintained his direct public assaults on the judiciary and the country’s democracy in response to their order had left it no choice but to hand down a jail term to South Africa’s fifth post-apartheid president.
A photo of him serving his jail term in one of the South African prisons has popped online.
