President Jacob Zuma says his job is not to authorise who lands at airports.

Zuma was answering questions in the National Assembly.

He said he had “no prior knowledge, involvement or communication relating to the landing of a private plane at AFB Waterkloof.”

He said as president he is “neither directly or indirectly involved in the authorisation of civilian aircraft landing at airports such as AFB Waterkloof”.

An air force official recently said under oath that “a call was received from Bruce Koloane informing her the president wanted to know and I quote 'if everything is still on track for the flight', said DA parliamentary leader, Lindiwe Mazibuko, in response to Zuma’s answer. Zuma said it was not his duty to know who landed at South Africa’s airports.
