Former president Jacob Zuma's son Edward threatened that if the Hawks broke the locks they would be breaking the law and he will be forced to defend the property and his family.
He revealed this during an interview with Newsroom Afrika explaining that the Zuma family had simple defences and they would stop the Hawks from accessing Zuma's homestead in Nkandla.
He went further and said that he is prepared to hire locksmiths to put locks on the gate to stop the Hawks from arresting his father according to The South African.
Jacob Zuma was due to appear before the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture on Monday 15 February but his lawyers said that he would not appear and their client believes that he is innocent.
uMkhonto weSizwe military veterans are heading to Nkandla to do what is "necessary" to prevent former president Jacob Zuma from being arrested. Zuma has refused to appear before the Zondo Commission of Inquiry despite being threatened with arrest.
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that One South Africa movement leader Mmusi Maimane has lashed out against former president Jacob Zuma.
Maimane has responded to the ANC's attempts to compel their comrade to heed the summons issued against him to appear before the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture with contempt.
In other news, Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has changed his tune as far as former president Jacob Zuma is concerned on Monday.
Zondo announced that the testimony of over 40 witnesses who have implicated the ANC politician at the State Capture Inquiry will now no longer be seen as 'allegations' but classed as 'evidence' instead.
Zondo questioned the logic at play, raising the question of why Zuma had opted out of answering to the allegations levied against him at the Inquiry.
