The Hawks have yet to confirm when former President Jacob Zuma will make his first court appearance.

According to weekend reports, Zuma is to be issued with a summons to appear in court for corruption charges on 6 April but the investigative unit says there are some administrative delays in the issuing of the summons which should be finalised soon.

The former president faces 16 charges of fraud, corruption and money laundering related to 783 payments from his former adviser Shabir Shaik.

702’s Ray White spoke to policy fellow of the Institute of Race Relations in South Africa Sara Gon.

“The work has been done from a point of view of investigating the matter, the details are there and it is really a question of whether there is any way he can drag it out,” said Gon.
