‘Plot on Zuma’: No further comment

2011-10-18 00:00

PRESIDENT Jacob Zuma will not comment further on the alleged plot on his life that he revealed at the weekend.

His spokesperson Mac Maharaj said the plot, in 2005 and 2006, “is now water under the bridge”.

Addressing the funeral of his bodyguard, Captain Patrick “Sho” Maphumulo, Zuma mentioned the plot for the first time, saying it was thwarted by the loyalty of his bodyguards.

Maharaj said the president raised the matter in the context of honouring his late protector and is not prepared to “engage further” on it.
