Jacob Zuma will stand trial on corruption charges.

It comes after a court denied the former South African President a permanent stay of prosecution.

Zuma is facing charged connected to a USD$ 2.5 billion (AED 9.1 billion) arms deal.

The ruling was made by Judge Jerome Mnguni in the Pietermaritzburg High Court.

Zuma’s trial will start on October 15.
