South Africa's former President, Jacob Zuma, is to face prosecution for 18 charges of corruption. They include more than 700 counts of fraud, racketeering and money laundering. He denies the charges.

The New York Times    JOHANNESBURG, South Africa — In a severe legal blow to Jacob Zuma, South Africa’s former president, national prosecutors announced on Friday that they would reinstate corruption charges against him in a case related to a multibillion-dollar arms deal in the late 1990s.

Shaun Abrahams, South Africa’s chief prosecutor, said there were “reasonable prospects of a successful prosecution” of Zuma.

The announcement was the latest — though, most likely, not final — chapter in a long-running corruption case that nearly derailed Zuma’s bid for the presidency, tarnished the image of South Africa’s governing African National Congress and laid the seeds of a culture of graft that has flourished in recent years.
