Elections 2024: Ahmed Kathrada Foundation admitted as friend of the court in IEC’s appeal

# # The Ahmed Kathrada Foundation has been accepted as friend of the court in the Electoral Commission’s appeal to the Constitutional Court. The IEC is appealing the Electoral Court ruling giving former president Jacob Zuma the green light to stand for public office in the upcoming general elections. The IEC had disqualified Zuma as a result of the 15-month prison sentence he was given in 2021 for contempt of court. The foundation says the former president is a constitutional delinquent and is not suitable for Parliament. The matter will be heard on Friday.
