Following the devastating floods that ravaged KZN last week, many residents were left with extensive damage to their homes and others with nothing more but the clothes are their backs.
One Mzansi woman @Lduga took to social media to propose that the many displaced individuals be accommodated in former president Jacob Zuma’s private homestead situated about 24km south of the rural town of Nkandla.
She captioned the post:
“Why are we not accommodating victims of #kznflood in this state house?”

Her suggestion sparked various views and reactions from cyber citizens, with many questioning the logic and appropriateness behind it. On the other hand, others agreed to her proposal:
“Losisi khuluma inqiniso, it falls under Durban. Still, people can be transported there temporarily.”
“This is getting irritating now, or you guys just don't wanna use your brains, 1stly this isn't a state house, it belongs to bab Zuma n his family, 2ndly Durban and Inkandla are way apart from each other, 3rdly yekani ubab Zuma alone, he paid wat the state wanted him to pay.
“The last time I checked is that the property you are referring to is a private homestead of His Excellency, President Gedleyihlekisa Jacob Zuma. Your assertion is not only comical but an insult to the Zuma family.”
