Entornointeligente.com / South Africa’s former President Jacob Zuma has handed himself in to police to begin serving a jail sentence for contempt of court.   His foundation said he travelled to a prison near to his home in KwaZulu-Natal province late Wednesday.   Police had warned they were prepared to arrest the 79-year-old if he did not hand himself in by the end of the day.   Mr. Zuma was given a 15-month jail term last week after he failed to attend a corruption inquiry.   The sentencing sparked an unprecedented legal drama in South Africa, with a deadline imposed of midnight Wednesday for his arrest.   The deadline was imposed after Mr. Zuma refused to hand himself in on Sunday.   South Africa has never seen a former president jailed before.   Mr. Zuma was handed the 15-month sentence on June 29 for defying an instruction to give evidence at an inquiry into corruption during his nine years in power.
