Zuma Cries Foul As ANC Government Stops Maintaining His Nkandla Home

Former South African president Jacob Zuma has blasted the ANC-led government for what he sees as a lack of attention to detail in regards to his Nkandla homestead.

According to reports, the former president's Nkandla homestead, which was built with taxpayer money and became a contentious issue during Zuma's presidency, is deteriorating.

Former South African President Jacob Zuma is blaming the government for the state of his Nkandla mansion at the moment. His sprawling property, which had undergone a controversial R240 million in security upgrades, had even stopped being mowed, according to him.

Nkandla has only been a week since an ANC delegation went to help clean and cut the grass around Zuma's property.

His property was so large that the ANC members were only able to cut and clean a portion of it.

Although some critics argue that Zuma deserves the treatment he receives, analysts believe he has a right to complain if the government isn't maintaining his residence. The government is said to be looking after the residences of other former presidents.

As a former president of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa is aware of the debt he owes." To do this to Jacob Zuma, they must remember that the homes of Mbeki, Mandela and De Klerk are still being maintained. There were those who claimed this was the case.

Why don't they take care of Zuma's home like they do those of De Klerk, Tutu, Mandela, Mbeki and Motlante?"

Even though he had stopped participating in ANC affairs for many years, former President Thabo Mbeki has been invited to speak at ANC events for years. This has been a long-standing RET complaint.

The RET wants to keep Zuma's house as part of the former president package.
