South Africa former President Jacob Zuma has been sentenced to 15 months in prison by the country’s top court.
This came after the Constitutional Court found him guilty of contempt of court.
Zuma failed to appear at the inquiry led by deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo in February.
The inquiry is examining allegations of high-end corruption deals during Zuma’s reign between 2009-2018.
He has been accused alongside several businessmen of conspiring to influence the deals.
Last month, in a separate matter, the 79-year-old politician pleaded not guilty in his corruption case involving $5 billion arms deals from the 1990s.
