BREAKING| Photos Of Zuma At The Durban Casino Leaked And He Was With Some Mysterious People

The Jacob Zuma Foundation has reacted angrily to a news article and photographs of former President Jacob Zuma at Durban's Sibaya Casino. Zuma was said to be meeting close allies at a restaurant owned by his pal, Durban businessman Vivian Reddy. Carl Niehaus, a suspended ANC member and the spokesperson for the defunct MKMVA, and former South African Airways chairperson Dudu Myeni were among those present at the meeting.

Mzwanele Manyi, a spokesman for the organization, told News24 that suggesting the meeting was "secret" was "stupid." The spokesman added "How can a meeting be secret in a public hotel? That alone is stupid. President Zuma is not short of secret venues. If that's what he wanted to have, why would he have a secret meeting? The report is stupid and it fails to differentiate between medical parole and house arrest. It's only when a person is under house arrest where you can question them being seen anywhere else other than by their house. If he was under house arrest this would have been very different."

Mzwanele Manyi, a spokesman for the organization, told News24 that suggesting the meeting was "secret" was "ridiculous." Zuma was sentenced to prison for contempt of court after refusing to appear before the State Capture Commission. Zuma was granted medical release last month by the Department of Correctional Services after completing a portion of his 15-month term at the Estcourt Correctional Centre in KwaZulu-Natal. According to Manyi, medical parole isn't just for the terminally sick.

Zuma's visit to the Durban casino prompted concerns regarding his medical parole restrictions. It comes after Zuma informed supporters during a prayer session on Thursday that he would be unable to attend due to the weather. The Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution (Casac) has demanded that Zuma's parole restrictions be made public by the justice and correctional services departments.
