Zuma Vows to Fight Back as South African Graft Trial Delayed

South Africa’s former President Jacob Zuma warned opponents and ruling party officials against attacking him in public and vowed to prove his innocence after the High Court postponed his corruption case until next month.

Federal Crown lawyer Glen Scheuer…
