Jacob Zuma: South Africa's 'kept' president

Jacob Zuma: South Africa's 'kept' president

EXPOSED: An auditors' report lays bare how a range of benefactors funded a reckless president's lifestyle by more than R7-million.

The Mail & Guardian can reveal crucial evidence in the case against President Jacob Zuma - evidence that was kept hidden when the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) abandoned its prosecution of him.

The M&G is publishing the key findings of the confidential September 2006 forensic report that auditors KPMG prepared for Zuma’s trial.

The report exposes the president as a "kept politician" - a financial freeloader who accepted money and favours on a routine and increasingly extravagant basis not only from his so-called financial adviser, Schabir Shaik, but also from other benefactors, including Nelson Mandela.

Running to about 500 pages, the "draft" report - although it is understood to be the final version - is based on tens of thousands of documents Scorpions investigators had seized from Shaik, Zuma and others.

How illuminating, and imagine all those white liberals that brag how they have met zuma, as if its something to be proud of.

I once spoke to someone who was totally star struck of being in the presence of winnie mandella, I couldn't figure out why? Maybe the "star's" luminescence blinds people from seeing that they actually individuals one wouldn't want to meet.

I don't easily get star struck.

This country can only go zimbabwe's way, and all the people that were complicit in it must have their face rubbed in it.

I liked when charles taylor, that scum black bastard from some 3rd world shithole, that mandela had at his party, the one who wanted to give naomi campbel a good tayloring, and offered her diamonds.

How graca machal that commie, was trying to do damage control by saying that scum lord charles taylor wasn't a guest at their party, yeah and we believed that commie.

Charles taylor didn't crash the diamond giving party, as mandela and graca would have us believe.

Mandela and graca have always surrounded themselves with unsavory individuals and this giving money to prop zuma is proof of their affinity to scum.

When the truth gets revealed, they move heaven and earth to prove that they not scum magnets.

I know if I got invited to a party and charles piece of shit taylor was a guest I wouldn't go, but then I have morals. A pity the can't buy some with their ill founded millions.

Mia farrow can't go public and relate how graca and nelson were disgusted to have taylor in their home, yeah right we believed it

When you been seen hugging may he rot in peace gadafi and castro, now charles taylor is all of a sudden disgusting

We not all dumb ass blacks with chieftan love syndrom

Tell us another crock graca and nelson,

Blacks in leadership who lacks integrity have done more harm to their own communities than any white racist ever could. Anyone who has worked with, or observed closely, the doings of the ANC for any length of time knows that integrity is virtually unknown amongst them. INTEGRITY is the first fundamental of prosperity. Economic freedom fighters and ANC politicians should take this in cognisance.

Operation Vula, its Secret Safari, and Zuma’s band of comrades - Dec. 2013
During 1986 the ANC launched an underground operation called Operation Vula. A lesser-known fact is that it continued to operate after Nelson Mandela's release in February 1990, and for three years after his speech in August 1990 when he reiterated the total commitment of the ANC, Umkhonto we Sizwe and the SACP to the Groote Schuur Minute.

Heritage Day Photographs (Voortrekker Monument) - Sept. 2013
This posting includes a few photographs taken on Heritage Day 2013. The posting introduces an unusual but beautiful new structure called QUO VADIS? (with the question mark) which I’m sure many readers have never heard of.

The Yellow-Bucket Marula Tree: A Mystery Solved! - Oct. 2013
I came across a rather strange phenomenon one day while travelling along the R561 route between Tolwe and Baltimore in the Limpopo province of South Africa. A small yellow bucket was attached high-up in a branch of a Marula tree, hence the name of this posting. It’s a real funny story which I’m sure most readers will enjoy - as much as I enjoyed compiling the article  - (with illustrations).

Pretoria’s Monument for Victims of Terrorism - July 2013
Many people (including myself) had almost forgotten about a noteworthy monument in Pretoria that stood at the entrance of the old Munitoria building on the corner of Van der Walt and Vermeulen Streets (now renamed Lilian Ngoyi and Madiba Streets). When the Munitoria building was demolished on 7 July 2013 nobody could tell me whether the monument was still standing or not, so I decided to go look for myself.

Remembering The Battle of Delville Wood - July 2013
14 July marks a day when the South African 1st Infantry Brigade got engaged in the 1916 (WW1) Battle of the Somme, in France. The battle was one of the largest of World War I, in which more than a million men were wounded or killed, making it one of humanity's bloodiest battles. One specific encounter during this battle, known as The Battle of Delville Wood, is of particular importance to South Africa. The posting includes a comprehensive article (with pictures) compiled and written by Petros Kondos.
