Court Orders Partial Freeze On Zuma’s Accounts.

Court Orders Partial Freeze On Zuma’s Accounts.

South African bank said on Wednesday a court had ordered a halt to outgoing payments from ex-president Jacob Zuma’s accounts in a dispute over loans for improvements to his private home while in power.

The First National Bank, said the measure was the result of legal action taken by the liquidators of another bank, which is owed money by the 81-year-old politician.

The measure is likely to further taint the reputation of graft-accused Zuma ahead of general elections on May 29.

In power from 2009 to 2018, Zuma is fronting a small start-up party that is threatening to take away key votes from his old home, the African National Congres.

The partial account freeze is related to the decade-old, controversial renovation of Zuma’s massive homestead in his home province of KwaZulu-Natal.
