The prosecution in former president Jacob Zuma’s case has asked for a postponement. The trial will resume on June 8.
Hundreds of African National Congress (ANC) supporters, including prominent party member Carl Niehaus, are in the High Court in Durban to support Zuma.
Most of them are dressed in ANC colours despite a call from the ANC NEC for them not to wear party regalia.
Zuma is facing 16 counts of fraud, money laundering and racketeering related to the multi-billion-rand arms deal.
Earlier Niehaus said he did not believe Zuma will get a fair trial.
