South African President Jacob Zuma cancels his scheduled trip to Mozambique after a visit to the critically ill former president Nelson Mandela in a Pretoria hospital.
Ten people are killed and more than 490 are detained as rioting and looting occur in South Africa following the imprisonment of former President Jacob Zuma. In a televised address to the nation, President Cyril Ramaphosa vows that the police and army would "restore order".
Former South African President Jacob Zuma pleads not guilty to multiple charges, including corruption, fraud, racketeering and money laundering, relating to a $2 billion arms deal in 1999. Zuma said that the charges were politically motivated by a rival section of the ruling African National Congress.
Former South African President and anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela, 94, in still-fragile health, is released from the hospital in Pretoria, South Africa to receive continuing at-home care. He had had his longest period of hospitalization (more than 2 weeks) there since his 1990 release from prison, as the result of a gallstone removal operation and a lung infection.
