The North Gauteng High Court will on Tuesday hear a case filed by the Democratic Alliance, Afriforum, and Helen Suzman Foundation challenging the granting of medical parole to former President Jacob Zuma.
The Jacob Zuma Foundation confirmed Judge Keoagile Elias Matojane will hear the case.
Zuma was sentenced to 15 months in jail for contempt of court after he refused to return and testify before the Zondo Commission.
Zuma surrendered to the police on July 7, 2021, subsequently being incarcerated at the Estcourt Correctional Centre in his home province of KwaZulu-Natal.
According to the Department of Corrections Services, Zuma was admitted to a hospital for routine medical observation on August 6.
He later underwent surgery for an unspecified condition on August 14, and had to remain hospitalised to undergo further medical procedures.
On September 5, he was granted medical parole pending completion of the remainder of his sentence.
In addition, he was allowed to receive medical care at home instead of a hospital.
Zuma became the first South African president since 1994 to receive a prison sentence on June 29, 2021.
