- Nompumelelo Ntuli-Zuma has been mulling over legal action against the state after being accused of poisoning Jacob Zuma
- Ntuli-Zuma's lawyer has advised his client to take action after no evidence materialised in the scandal
- The former president's wife is said to have suffered poor treatment in the four years since the allegations first surfaced
Nompumelelo Ntuli-Zuma is contemplating her next move after she was falsely accused of poisoning Jacob Zuma.
Briefly.co.za reported that the charges have been dropped after no evidence linking Ntuli-Zuma to the supposed crime was found.
Ulrich Roux, MaNtuli's lawyer, has encouraged his client to take action against the state following the ordeal:
“I have advised my client to consider civil action against the NPA and the State. She was implicated in this alleged plot to kill Zuma without any evidence. There is a possible claim for damages for legal fees and for pain and suffering.”
IOL reports that Roux had revealed how Ntuli-Zuma and her children suffered 'tremendously' after the allegations materialised in 2015, forced out of the infamous Nkandla home-stead.
Meanwhile, the Zuma family are set to become the focus of a new reality TV show in Mzansi, with more details expected on this later this month.
