The former President Jacob Zuma’s application for leave to appeal the High Court judgment on his trial has been dismissed.
Zuma launched a leave to appeal bid, arguing the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) could arrive at a different decision to the High Court.
The High Court dismissed his leave to appeal application with costs.
Zuma faces charges of corruption, fraud and racketeering linked to the arms deal.
His counsel has argued that there have been too many delays and therefore the case should be dismissed, a charge dismissed by the prosecution.
