Johannesburg - The Presidency on Sunday rejected allegations based on a new book that contains explosive claims about President Jacob Zuma’s financial and tax affairs.

''The tax matters of the President are in order… The President has also not received any information related to taxes linked to the Nkandla upgrades.''

The Presidency was responding to the release of a new book, The President’s Keepers, by former Media24 investigative journalist Jacques Pauw which contains explosive allegations about President Jacob Zuma and the calibre of certain people surrounding him – as well as allegations of certain irregular payments and questions around some tax issues.
