Jacob Zuma’s castle of corruption crumbles
A cross-party group of South African politicians have visited President Jacob Zuma’s country estate, to see for themselves whether the £13 million of taxpayers’ cash spent on “security upgrades” was money well spent
Jacob Zuma’s £13 million of taxpayer-funded upgrades to his private estate have been described as “obscene” by a politician granted rare access to the compound.
A group of South African MPs on Wednesday inspected the controversial Nkandla country retreat in KwaZulu Natal, 120 miles north of Durban, to confirm a police report which found the upgrades to be essential.
The embattled president has carried out renovations worth out 246 million rand (£13 million)to the estate since he was elected president – something which has caused outrage across the country. (Cartoon by nasoweseeam.com story culled from telegraph.co.uk)
