Zuma reveals wife was raped at Nkandla

2014-05-05 12:18

Johannesburg – President Jacob Zuma has revealed that security upgrades at his Nkandla residence in KwaZulu-Natal were necessary, as his home had previously been burnt, and criminals had broken in and raped his wife.

Zuma was speaking at an ANC breakfast briefing on Monday.

Carien du Plessis tweeted: "Zuma: my home was burnt, criminals broke in, raped my wife, charged and convicted. When Zuma became president, security raised #ANCbreakfast"

According to David Smith, Zuma said: "My homestead was burned twice during violence. Secondly, criminals came, raped my wife during the time I was still the MEC."

Zuma served as MEC for Economic Affairs and Tourism in KwaZulu-Natal from 1994-1999.

Ranjeni Munusamy ‏also tweeted that the issue was known about, but not revealed before because rape victims may not be identified. This is also why it was not mentioned in Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's report into the Nkandla upgrade.

Zuma also mentioned that the Nkandla upgrade is not an issue that affects voters, and it was not a major election issue.

He added that he had not been found guilty of misconduct.
