Mr Zuma believes the re-instatement of the charges which were dropped back in 2009, after reports of political interference, are once again politically motivated.
Zuma was greeted with cheers and ululations by more than a thousand supporters outside court. Durban is in Zuma's home province of KwaZulu-Natal. He faces 16 counts of corruption, racketeering, fraud and money laundering.
The arms deal controversy clouded Zuma's reputation for decades, even before a slew of other scandals rocked his presidency.
Zuma stated that he would be proven innocent in a corruption case against him and his opponents were telling lies.
Selfe said Zuma should not be given a cent in state assistance for his upcoming trial, set to start on June 8. Hundreds of supporters also defied instructions from Luthuli House not to wear party regalia and colours to court, preferring to show loyalty to Zuma instead. He resigned on February 14, forced out by the leadership of the ruling African National Congress, his own party. Ramaphosa and his allies have made fighting corruption a priority before national elections scheduled for 2019.
Marchers, many clad in the distinctive gold, green and black of the ANC, carried placards reading "Hands off Zuma" and "Champion of Radical Economic Transformation". The ANC has distanced itself from its former leader. Some held posters stating "100 per cent behind Zuma".

Speaking in isiZulu to a large crowd gathered outside the court, Zuma defended his name and said it had been dragged through the mud. That's why they take me to court. "They can not tell us to dress to support him".
Zuma was initially charged in 2007 while his greatest political rival, Thabo Mbeki, was president - charges that almost derailed his ambitions to succeed Mbeki.
Fallout has cast a shadow over South African politics ever since.
"These charges were created as a political plot".
But the NPA last month said the bid was unsuccessful. But the main opposition party, the Democratic Alliance, challenged the decision to set aside the charges, and in 2016, it was judged "irrational" by the High Court - a ruling that the Supreme Court upheld past year.
