Up until now, on the basis of a 2006 "deal" between the State Attorney and Zuma, the former president has enjoyed untrammelled funding for his multiple challenges to the corruption charges against him.
The postponement, which was agreed on by all three legal teams, came as Zuma's team looked to finalise its application for a review of the decision to reinstate charges against Zuma, which they say will be completed by the end of May. Many of them were wearing African National Congress (ANC) regalia despite a directive from the party not to do so.
In March 2016 the South African Supreme Court of Appeal upheld a judgement that the failure by Zuma's government to arrest Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir was illegal.
Zuma and Christine Guerrier of French arms manufacturer Thales, which is Zuma's co-accused in the case, were released on warning.
Some of the roads around the grand court building had been cordoned off, while a large stage was erected by Mr Zuma's supporters a few metres from the courthouse.
"Over the years from 2003 through 2009 I've found that Thales group was complicit in a lot of issues as regards the charges that are now being brought forward involving Jacob Zuma and Thales", said Sooklal.
"I am innocent until proven guilty, but there are people who want to treat me like I am guilty", Zuma told the crowd from a concert-style stage to wild cheers.

He said "humanitarian cases" would be allowed to evacuate on Monday. There was no immediate comment from the Army of Islam.
However, Zuma still retains some popular support, especially in his home province of KwaZulu-Natal, where the case is being heard.
"Hands off RET (radical economic transformation), hands off Zuma", read one brandished placard.
It is expected that Zuma will be formally charged with 16 counts of corruption, money laundering and fraud during the hearing which is likely to be brief and procedural.
"What we are saying, what the former president is saying, is true - we don't think we are going to get a fair trial", said a supporter, Bishop Timothy Ngcobo who appeared on stage alongside Zuma.
Thint allegedly paid Shaik, then Zuma's financial advisor, R500 000 for Zuma's "protection" during the controversial arms deal.
State prosecutor Billy Downer suggested that Zuma's trial start on November 12, though a lawyer for Zuma said the defense would not agree to any trial date for now.
