With the constitutional court yet to rule on how much President Jacob Zuma is to pay for his refurbished homestead, the situation seemed rather too hard on the president to bear and as such, he has put the homestead up for sale on an online classified site OLX.
Pictures of the homestead was seen on the site with a map list covering the areas of the property, the homestead was put up for sale at R260 million and the advert was posted on February 11 by a person identified on the site as Ntoeng Sekhoto
The homestead was described as a “3.83ha luxury compound with world-class security & entertainment infrastructure for sale in the pristine & historical sprawling hills of Nkandla municipality ‘Enqabeni Enkulu KwaZulu’.
The advert further stated that the estate is in a “prime location with strategic seclusion and road access points perfect for highly discreet, protected and luxury serene living”.
“Equipped with almost any amenity an international stately family would require, complete with security operational quarters, a helipad & an underground bunker with seamless “panic-mode” transit rail – this kingdom of exclusivity is a secure dream in the heartland of balmy Kwa-Zulu Natal,” reads the advertisement.
Other captivating descriptions were made to capture the attention of the potential buys. These include:
- Kraal / Livestock enclosure with culvert – 37.8m diameter
- Small fowl enclusure [sic] – perfect for ducks, quails, hens
- First-aid house with dedicated diesel-powered generator
- Tear-drop Pool for leisure & emergency use.
- Access to astro-turf & soccer field on estate

- Underground bunker with ample living quarters with autonomous water systems

President Zuma who had on Friday assured South Africans that he will pay any amount stipulated on him by the court, said he is yet to receive an answer from the court.
“There are many times when I asked how much I must pay back, but no one knows. There was a political perception I am not going to pay. Paying that money is not admitting anything wrong”, he said as he quickly added that more investigations in the matter is still on ground.
Though no comments have been made by the president over the sale of his homestead, the Nkandla saga has been one of the issues that had given the president hard times in the past few week especially as parties like the DA and the EFF are out to make sure he pays all he is owning. Perhaps, the president is really out to make amends of his past mistakes.
