Zumas paradise



President Jacob Zuma’s rural home renovations at Nkandla in KwaZulu Natal has everyone captivated. It’s been estimated that the lavish property upgrade cost between R203 million and R240 million. The upgrades include underground living quarters, a healthy facility for the president and his family, a helicopter pad, houses for the air force and police units, playgrounds and a centre for visitors. The rural compound has 31 new buildings, 6 of each costing R8 million, an elevator worth R2,3 million to carry South Africa’s royal family from their underground quarters.  For air sent straight from heaven, the president’s air-conditioner cost R1.5 million.
