The lobby group, AfriForum, has sent a lawyer’s letter to the National Commissioner of Correctional Services, Arthur Fraser urgently requesting answers within three days, regarding former President, Jacob Zuma’s medical parole.
AfriForum’s obsession with black people to never end. The Head of Policy and Action, Ernst Roets said they want to know if Zuma suffers from a terminal disease.

- Zuma Medical Parole Makes A Mockery Of South African Law
If not, they want the details of the injury, disease, or illness which justified Zuma’s medical parole.
Afriforum further wants to know how Fraser came to the conclusion that Zuma will not transgress again.
Roets said they’ve also requested copies of the application for medical parole and the medical report that followed.
“One would have guessed with a matter as sensitive and high profile as this one, the Department of Correctional Services would have taken extra care to make sure there are no unanswered questions by the public as to why former President Jacob Zuma was released on medical parole,” said Roets.
Roets said questions the legality of Zuma’s release.

“It appears that the contrary has happened, and it seems as if the legal requirements were not followed with this decision, which is why AfriForum submitted an urgent attorneys’ letter to the department in which we ask for answers to be provided by the 10th of September.
“Depending on the answers we receive, we will decide if further legal action is necessary,” he said.
