SOUTH AFRICAN COURT RULES PARLIAMENT FAILED TO HOLD ZUMA TO ACCOUNT OVER SCANDAL

South Africa’s Constitutional Court ruled on Friday that parliament failed to hold President Jacob Zuma to account over a scandal related to state-funded upgrades to his home and must launch proceedings that could remove him from office.

The ruling is the latest judicial setback for the scandal-plagued Zuma, who has faced widespread public demands to step down as president of Africa’s most industrialized economy before a general election in 2019.

It was not immediately clear what steps parliament would take.
