Public Funds misappropriated.

11 June 2014, 09:08

This is theft of public funds on a grand scale. It would have been another matter had it been state property, which would ultimately be owed by the state.

This is Jacob Zuma’s private residence, and that makes it theft of public funds, solely for the benefit of his family long after his death.

Not his annual salary, nor his pension payout, nor any amount due to him during or after his presidency, would ever equate to the millions of taxpayer’s money misappropriated for his personal use. Such is the audacity from a man who has denied any prior knowledge of the magnitude of the upgrade.

Approval for the building plans and the cost had to come from his as owner of the property.

Salute to the media for publishing photographs of our president’s private residence, even though out ruthless and corrupt government threatens with breach of security.

Nkandla is a much nicer estate that what poor President Barrack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron have. Who would be paying for the upkeep not that more than R 200 million has been spent, or is the taxpayer going to continue paying, even if the ANC is defeated in the next election.

South African owes fellow citizens a vote against the nepotism and corruption.

Under ANC rule, the poor will remain poor, and the middle class will become poorer.
