Former South African President Jacob Zuma leaves Tuynhuys at Parliament, where President Cyril Ramaphosa hosted a Cabinet farewell in his honour, Cape Town on February 20.
South Africa's chief prosecutor said on Friday former President Jacob Zuma would face 16 charges which includes fraud, racketeering and corruption.
It's understood more than 200 witnesses have already confirmed their availability to testify if Zuma's case goes on trial.
He said there were "reasonable prospects of a successful prosecution", BBCreported.
Maimane said that the DA had been fighting to have Zuma brought back to court since it launched a review application in 2009 against the decision to drop original charges against him "illegally and unconstitutionally". The charges relate to an arms deal in the 1990s, when Zuma was deputy president.
Zuma faces 18 charges‚ involving 783 incidents‚ of racketeering‚ corruption‚ money laundering and fraud.
Appearing before Parliament's Standing Committee on Public Accounts (Scopa) on Wednesday night, Shaun Abrahams refused to reveal to MPs exactly what his decision is, at least not until he's informed Zuma. While the order paved the way for a trial to proceed, prosecutors allowed Zuma to make representations as to why he shouldn't be indicted. Schabir Shaikh, his former financial adviser, was found guilty and jailed in 2005 for trying to solicit bribes for Zuma from a French arms company.
The ANC responded to the reinstated charges against Zuma, saying it has confidence in the South African criminal justice system and is committed to the idea of "equality of all before the law".
UniteBehind also welcomed the decision and said, since its inception a year ago, it has demanded that Zuma be prosecuted over the corruption charges. Zuma has since repaid some of the money, as ordered by the court.
Mokotedi Mpshe, the acting NPA head between 2007 and 2009 made the decision to drop charges against Zuma.
