The Durban High Court adjourned until June 8 the case of corruption in a 2.5 billion arms deal dollars, filed against Zuma.
Last month, prosecutions chief Shaun Abrahams - dubbed "Shaun the Sheep" for his loyalty to Zuma during his presidency - ordered that Zuma be charged with fraud, corruption and money laundering.
Schabir Shaikh, Zuma's financial adviser, was charged with and found guilty of trying to solicit the arms deal bribes.
The charges were however dropped by the agency in 2009 shortly before Mr Zuma became president.
Meanwhile, Zuma's legal representative said they meant to file an application to review the decision by NPA boss Shaun Abrahams to prosecute him. Zuma may also apply for a stay of prosecution, said Downer.

In a different scenario, should Zuma be asked to plead sooner, Hoffman said his legal team was likely to try to foster a deal that might result in some of the charges being dropped.
The spy tapes were recordings of phone conversations that apparently showed political interference in the decision to charge Zuma 13 years ago.
However, the opponents of the ex-South African leader think that the court trial is long overdue.

Constitutional lawyer Pierre de Vos tweeted that a court had already ruled that the decision to prosecute Zuma was valid.
It seems Jacob Zuma's legal woes keep mounting.
After his court appearance, Mr. Zuma took to the stage at a rally of his supporters, portraying himself as the victim of a "political plot" because of his race and his economic beliefs. "I am innocent until proven guilty", he said.
The Zuma of old is still here - the crowd pleaser, the charmer and tactical politician. He resigned February 14 on the orders of his celebration, the African National Congress.
The ANC announced on Sunday it would not support Mr Zuma during his trial, but it agreed to let party members do so in their personal capacity.
He was replaced by Cyril Ramaphosa after nine years in power.
Black First Land First (BLF), a radical pro-Zuma group that has supported him through numerous scandals, said it expected 200 bus-loads of supporters to travel to the court ahead of his arrival.
A battle is also brewing over whether the state should keep paying his legal bills.
