Mourners on Thursday morning began to stream in to former president, Jacob Zuma’s Nkandla homestead for his brother, Michael’s funeral.

The former president, who is currently saving a 15 month jail term at the Estcourt Correctional Service Centre, has been temporarily released to attend the funeral.

However, at around 9 am on Thursday morning it was still not clear whether Zuma has already arrived.

Some of the mourners made a stop at Zuma’s home but members of the Mkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA), performing access control duties, directed them to Michael’s home, where the funeral service would be held a stone throw away from the former president’s home.
