South Africa Court Jails former President Zuma

South Africa’s former president Jacob Zuma has been handed a 15-month jail sentence for contempt of court.

The country’s constitution court imposed the sentence on Tuesday for defying an order to appear at a corruption inquiry.

The disgraced former president failed to appear at the inquiry led by Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo in February.

He has been ordered to present himself to police within five days so he can be committed to a correctional facility.
Judge says, in the ruling, no body is above the law.
