The Ministry of Correctional Services has confirmed that former President Jacob Zuma is to be freed today.
Of course, for just a day or few minutes.
This after he filed an application seeking permission to attend his brother’s funeral in Nkandla on Thursday.
He won’t be wearing the infamous uniform when he attends the funeral.
Zuma’s younger brother Michael passed away after a long illness, a few days after Zuma started his 15-month prison sentence at the Estcourt correctional services facility for contempt of court after failing to appear at the Zondo commission of inquiry into state capture.
Nxumalo said Zuma filed the application late on Tuesday.
