Former president Jacob Zuma’s Nkandla neighbours were on Monday preparing a welcome ceremony for him.

This is after Zuma’s convoy was spotted in the area on Saturday.

According to a reliable source, Zuma’s close family members have been flocking to his Nkandla home since Friday.

“We have been told that he is at home and as his neighbours we are extremely excited.

“We are just waiting for an official confirmation from the family before we could go there for the welcome ceremony,” the source said.

Zuma’s aides, who had not been seen in the area since his arrest in July, are also back in the village.

“The black vehicles have been driving up and down since Friday.

“The only time you see these vehicles is when uMsholozi (Zuma) is around,” another neighbour said.

Zuma's spokesperson, Mzwanele Manyi, could not be reached for comment.
