According to a recent report, Jacob Zuma is accused of stowing away $30 million (about R422 million) for late Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi. The money was allegedly stored in a bunker at Nkandla before it was moved to Swaziland.
Jacob Zuma allegedly stored a huge amount of money for late Libyan dictator, Muammar Gaddafi, in case he needed it for legal assistance or to take care of his family.
According to a report, Zuma stowed away $30 million (about R422m) for the dictator in a bunker at Nkandla. He held on to the millions for years after Gaddafi was killed in 2011, before sending it to eSwatini (Swaziland).
The Citizen claims that this money is the reason why public protector, Thuli Madonsela, was denied access to the bunker when she investigated Zuma’s Nkandla home in 2013.
President Ramaphosa has reportedly now been called in to help recover the money, referred to as 'Muammar Gaddafi's millions'.
TimesLIVE reports that King Mswati met with the president and admitted to the existence of the millions.
Briefly.co.za learnt that there is speculation that Zuma tried to convert the money to pay for his legal fees, but there is no proof of this yet.
