Arms deal corruption case adjourned to May

Former president Jacob Zuma's arms deal corruption case has been adjourned to May the 17th in the High Court in Pietermaritzburg. The aim of the postponement is to allow the pre-trial conference between the state and defense teams on when the trial should resume. Earlier, Judge Nkosinathi Chili dismissed Zuma's application to have lead prosecutor - Advocate Billy Downer - removed from the case. Chili has indicated that he would give the reasons for his rulings at the end of the trial.

But are there any limits to these appeals, joining us for this conversation is Elton Hart from the University of Johannesburg law clinic
