Former president Jacob Zuma when he addressed his supporters who had gathered at the People's Park in Durban this week, he said that even though he was released from jail on medical parole, he remains a prisoner under house arrest.
Zuma likened his medical parole conditions to that of what it felt like under the apartheid regime.
He lamented that his opponents are using the constitution to settle political scores, while violating his constitutional rights.
Duduzile Zuma-Sambudla, the daughter of the former head of state has however refuted those claims citing that her father is not under house arrest.
Zuma's daughter was hitting back at Sunday Times and Sunday Tribune newspapers for their reportage on Zuma's parole conditions. She said her father cannot be the only newsmaker in a country where a lot of activities are happening.
"Amanda Khoza from @SundayTimesZA and Lindiwe Gumede from @SundayTribuneSA my father is not under house arrest and you are not privy to his parole conditions. My father can’t be your only newsmaker, there are taxi wars happening and ministers being taken "Hostage" #WenzenuZuma," she said.
