Former SA President Zuma sentenced to 15 months in jail 

South Africa's former President Jacob Zuma has been sentenced to 15 months in jail by the country's highest court, BBC has reported.

The court issued five days for Zuma to hand himself in to police. Failing that, the police minister must order his arrest.

The sentence comes after the Constitutional Court found him guilty of contempt for defying its order to appear at an inquiry into corruption while he was president.

Mr Zuma's time in power, which ended in 2018, was dogged by graft allegations.

Businessmen were accused of conspiring with politicians to influence the decision-making process.
