PICS: Media tour inside Nkandla

Select media have been allowed into President Jacob Zuma's Nkandla homestead in KwaZulu-Natal on Sunday for an official tour. See all the latest pictures from inside Nkandla here.

Durban - Stringent security awaited about 20 media delegates who were about to embark on an official tour of President Jacob Zuma's Nkandla homestead in KwaZulu-Natal on Sunday morning.

News24’s Amanda Khoza, who is on the tour, said that they first had to get accreditation on arrival.

They were then escorted to the security check point, where their bags were scanned by a machine and sniffer dogs.

Journalists, photographers and cameramen are on a police bus waiting to be taken on the tour.

The visit comes after the SA National Editors' Forum said it was disappointed by the limited access journalists had during a parliamentary committee oversight visit to Zuma's home on Wednesday.
