It’s been a long, long time coming, but eventually Zuma has coughed up the cash for all those extra upgrades his private residence enjoyed.
The chants of ‘pay back the money’ may finally die down in Parliament, but just how JZ plans to raise that money will anger many.
In amongst all the facts and figures floating around it appears one vital piece of information has been largely overlooked. JZ will be loving this then.
When the upgrade to your abode costs a whopping R246 million, what is a ‘reasonable’ amount to pay back? The numbers get crunched here.
Following the ConCourt ruling JZ is required to pay back the money for Nkandla. Today that amount has finally been settled on.
Tell us something we don’t know right, except the Sunday Times have uncovered some rather incriminating evidence that points to JZ fibbing.
We’ve all seen our fair share on Nkandla jokes, although somehow this gem managed to sneak under the radar. Check out this glowing review.
The Constitutional Court regarding Zuma and Nkandla is currently live – Watch it here.
Julius Malema held a little press conference yesterday to speak his mind on various matters, mostly concerning the Guptas, Nkandla and curry.
Zuma’s statement to pay back a yet-to-be-determined amount of the 250 million he “owes” the state could just be another one of his ploys to win back some internal support in the ANC.
After Zuma’s second embarrassing act in two months, senior members of the ANC, including a former caucus chairperson, have been outspoken bout their feelings towards him.
Back in 2014, the Public Protector submitted a report on Nkandla that found it to a bit over the top. Now, the Presidency has issued a report on how this matter will be settled.
We may not have seen anyone expelled from Parliament by the beefed up security but we did see Julius take the moral high ground and threaten el Presidente.
We know that things can get pretty unruly when Jacob Zuma takes questions in parliament so it’s not surprising that security is being seriously beefed up.
Ahh, the start of a new week. And what better way to get it going than watching some firefighters play make-believe with the Nkandla fire pool
Defending your head of state against assassinations and attacks is a necessary evil. So how does Nkandla’s safe haven bunker look after our dear JZ?
Mac warned Zuma. Another Hollywood kid dead. Gold plunges. Obama on Africa. Local man kills neighbour’s 3 kids. Fiat fined R1 billion. Monaco vs British royals. Chris Brown stranded for days. Snoop arrested. Tom Cruise on Top Gun 2.
Even Donald Trump would have been impressed with the gall shown by ANC supporters outside Nkandla during yesterday’s inspection. Clutching at straws, anyone?
The photos from yesterday’s Nkandla inspection are truly shocking. Just kidding, there are sadly no surprises here as the country’s media show us what we’ve been paying for
The world isn’t exactly looking at South Africa through rose-coloured glasses at present, that much we know. Mandy Wiener says it might be worse than we think.
The words ‘Zuma’ and ‘shocking’ have long been associated but this writer thinks their may be some method to JZ’s madness. He might actually have a point as well.
Remember how hard you worked, putting in all those extra hours long after everyone had gone home to get your pay rise? It is somewhat easier for others.
Trevor Noah is back on our shores and couldn’t resist the chance to get a few digs in at FIFA and Sepp Blatter. Over to you.
Sometimes there isn’t much you can do but have a laugh at the shambles that is the South African government. May as well start with the firepool fiasco then.
We’re getting quite used to hearing Jacob Zuma enjoy a chuckle at our expense in parliament, but should he really be cracking jokes about Nkandla?
