South African ruling party leader indicted for corruption
Dwyer Arce at 12:00 AM ET

On December 28, 2007, the South African National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) indicted Jacob Zuma, the leader of the ruling African National Party (ANC). He was charged with corruption, fraud, money laundering and racketeering. The charges were later dropped after a protracted legal battle. Earlier that month, Zuma was elected leader of the ruling African National Congress, and was later elected president of South Africa.
