Former president Jacob Zuma is set to have a ‘dream team’ of legal representatives when he returns to court on corruption charges this week.
This after he fired longtime attorney, Michael Hulley, at the beginning of July.
According to a report by the Sunday Times, the four senior advocates and one junior counsel are estimated to cost anywhere between R160,000 and R290,000 a day.
However, these costs are likely to rise into the millions when Zuma goes to trial in November.
In addition the Sunday Times reported that two of the advocates are also acting for Zuma’s son, Duduzane, and the Gupta family in state capture criminal cases, while neither has disclosed who is paying the bill.
