  • Nkandla amphitheatre is a measure to deter intruders

    Police Minister Nathi Nhleko says the amphitheatre at Nkandla is a measure to deter intruders. Addressing a briefing on his department’s investigation on the upgrades to President Jacob Zuma’s home‚ the Minister quoted a Wikipedia definition of what an amphitheatre is. Showing pictures of an entertainment amphitheatre and the Nkandla “amphitheatre“- Nhleko said it “clearly does not resemble an entertainment area“. “Dwarf stepping walls” were a security feature as they did not allow for intruders to hide out the same way that straight walls did.

  • Reports on Zuma’s friends are ‘cooked’: EFF

    All reports that implicate President Jacob Zuma’s friends in the executive “are either cooked or permanently postponed”‚ the Economic Freedom Fighters said. This was the party’s reaction to the last-minute postponement of police minister Nathi Nhleko’s “release of a report that should tell the country how much president Zuma needs to pay for the unlawful and criminal upgrade of his private home in Nkandla”. “The EFF has always warned about the incompetence of the ANC government and its lack of urgency and respect for the public‚” said EFF spokesman Mbuyiseni Quintin Ndlozi. Zuma too should not be believed‚ Ndlozi said‚ “when he says he will release the Marikana report [before the] ‘end of next month’ because all reports that implicate his friends in the executive are either cooked or permanently postponed”.

  • Zimbabwe: NGO Leader Accused of Leaking Mugabe 'Debt' Story

    Civil society activist Mr Goodson Nguni has been fingered as the source behind a false NewsDay story that claimed that President Mugabe owed sacked former Zanu-PF Mashonaland East provincial chairman Mr Ray Kaukonde $30 million. The money was reportedly loaned to the First Family to boost its business, the paper published by Alpha Media Holdings (AMH) claimed. Citing unnamed and faceless sources, the paper claimed that President Mugabe told the Politburo meeting last Thursday that they must not be shocked that Mr Kaukonde might drag him to court over the $30 million, which he gave the First Family before the multi-currency regime in 2008. President Mugabe, the paper claimed, indicated that he would soon settle the debt.
