JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South Africa's National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) will brief the media on Monday on its response to a court ruling that it review a 2009 decision to drop 783 corruption charges against President Jacob Zuma, its spokesman said on Friday.

"We said initially that we're applying our minds (on the ruling) ... We're going to be briefing the media on Monday on the way forward," NPA spokesman Luvuyo Mfaku said.
