Zuma wins corruption case appeal

A South African court has ruled that a corruption case against ruling party leader Jacob Zuma cannot go ahead.

He was facing charges of corruption, fraud and money laundering relating to a 1999 arms deal.

A judge in Pietermaritzburg said there was reason to believe the decision to charge him was politically motivated.

The decision effectively clears the path of the 66-year-old to become South African president next year.
