But the KZN NPA spokesperson Natasha Kara says Zuma's lawyer withdrew from the case, citing ethical reasons.


"While the state was ready to proceed, to the extent that witnesses were warned to be in court, the court adjourned the case for Zuma to apply for Legal Aid. 


"The matter returns to court on 16 September 2022."
