Johannesburg - The nephew of President Jacob Zuma has launched a land claim targeting more than 60 farms in Impendle in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, The Citizen reported on Monday.

"I do not think there is any dispute around that - that entire land was historically under the KwaNxamalala Tribal Authority," Inkosi Simpiwe Zuma, who presides over the kwaNxamalala community in Impendle, was quoted as saying.

He said most of the commercial farms in the area would be subject to the land claim, and that the tribal authority was conducting research to establish the extent of the land.

"I cannot tell you... how vast the land is... that is why we need to first conduct our own research. But all I'm prepared to say at the moment is that the claim is huge," he told the publication.

The kwaNxamalala in Impendle, which is separate from the kwaNxamalala in Nkandla, is President Zuma's ancestral home.
