    South Africa’s former president Jacob #Zuma pleaded not guilty in a much-postponed corruption case dating back more than two decades. Among the charges, Zuma is accused of taking bribes from French defence giant #Thales to ensure that South Africa signed a multi-billion dollar arms deal with the company in 1999.
