Thousands of supporters of former president Jacob Zuma are expected to march in Durban on Friday ahead of his court appearance.
The gathering is set to start at 7 am
Zuma will be in the dock in the KwaZulu-Natal High Court to face 16 charges of fraud, racketeering, corruption and money-laundering related to the arms deal.
On Thursday night, supporters held a night vigil ahead of his highly anticipated court appearance.
The court appearance is expected to be brief and the case is likely to be postponed.
Despite the pressure from the ANC that resulted in Zuma’s resignation in February, he still enjoys support in the party.
The ANC Women’s League, the Youth League and the MKMVA have thrown their weight behind him.
