South African Presidency Rejects Allegations

PRETORIA, South Africa, October 30, 2017-The Presidency rejected the allegations contained in media reports on 29 October 2017, claiming wrongdoing by President Jacob Zuma in relation to some undeclared funds.

President Zuma has declared to the relevant authorities all income received and allegations contained in the reports are misleading and are clearly part of the ongoing smear campaigns. The tax matters of the President are in order.

The President has also not received any information related to taxes linked to the Nkandla upgrades as alleged by the media.
