A massive Kwa-Zulu Natal mansion which sits on a hill overlooking King Shaka International Airport and Moses Mabhida Stadium has been the source of a great deal of controversy recently.

According to IOL, the land on which the huge home is being built was illegally obtained.

A company called Crown Hill Properties has legal rights to the land and managed to acquire a court order in 2017 in order to halt the building of the mansion, which was almost completely constructed.

A woman who works as a construction developer and remained anonymous told a source that the large house belonged to her mother, who is a businesswoman.

However, she was unprepared to speak on record about the controversy surrounding the ownership of the land.

Locals living in eTafuleni, in Inanda, were asked about the situation and told media representatives that the mansion belonged to a South African politician.
