    Hope the Ghana president enjoy his shower at Nkandla, Zuma is obsessed with having showers so the showers should be good

  • Mike Peach Purchase - 2012-12-30 14:52

    Maybe they shower together therefore the need for an upgrade.

    Meeting at private residence = Private visit = No cost to Tax Payer. Nkandla is NOT an official residence of the South African President. - 2012-12-30 15:20

      well, having a visitor at his 'residence' means he can charge the government for every cent (+200%) to pay for the visit lol

      ernest.lwandle - 2012-12-30 18:03

      @ SIFISO ,kortbroek he grew up as a farmboy as you can read his name,so the moment his bussy training under boere ninja cam as a commandat while hes carrying afri forum youth leage membership card so pls ignore him since he will forever judge anything from blacks as B ,,,,SHT.

      kortbroek.duplessis - 2012-12-31 03:33

      Ag siestog I should insult your showerhead, shame it causes such grief. @sifiso I am hoping that Zuma remains president for the next while, long enough to finish what he started his first term, to destroy the ANC. And for your info I have nothing against blacks, I have black friends.

    Zuma's showing off his private residence paid for by the tax payers. What's the message from a veteran corrupt president to an incoming president?

  • winifred.watson.9 - 2012-12-30 19:17

    By the smirk on this guy's face he must have listened to Zuma's unafrican comments. Bet you when he gets to Nkandla he will wonder why zuma enjoys the white culture so much but tells his people to go back to their grass roots. Hence the smirk.

  • africa.mthululi - 2012-12-30 20:59

    Most comments are driven by jealousy. These guys are our rulers whether we like it or not. Remember majority of us are not educated hence we vote them so that you {educated}can attack them on social sites where we [uneducated} don't have access to.....

  • Mike Peach Purchase - 2012-12-30 21:18

    hehehe themba good one its always good to laugh.

  • Mike Peach Purchase - 2012-12-30 21:21

    Africa then you must demand that your rulers educate everyone.As you mentioned they are rulers,not leaders and im pleased you realise that.

  • Mike Peach Purchase - 2012-12-30 21:23

    Sifiso nah boet,5 years and gone.

  • mohlaoliwilliam.khambule - 2012-12-30 21:54

    Zuma is a good president of south Africa he is doing well and I am happy.Qhobeka Msholozi.

      themba.thwala.775 - 2012-12-30 21:57

      All idiots are happy that another idiot is in power.

  • evans.mohale2 - 2012-12-31 07:51

    reading news24 white people s comments,i can safely periorate that white people loathe blacks,to be frank.

      winifred.watson.9 - 2012-12-31 08:08

      No white people dont hate blacks, if they did they would'nt be in the majority today, have you thought about that. What we dont like is when people use power over ignorance and try to brain wash us. Zuma is always having some sort of undertone racist dig at the white culture but go to Nkandla and see how much white culture is there, look at his wives houses in the country, do you see them building african everything they do is westernised. Yes, have your african culture, nobody will deny you that but dont keep knocking people who enjoy the western spoils which zuma and fam cant live without. Live and let live but dont tell people to keep the door closed whilst you keep yours open. Two faced that is what it is called.
