Jacob Zuma and the Foundation which bears his name have issued their response to a court directive, which compels SARS to share the former president’s tax records with two media houses.

What’s in Jacob Zuma’s tax records?

The Financial Mail and amaBhungane have been granted access to Jacob Zuma’s tax activity, as they bid to forensically analyse how Msholozi spent his money while in charge of South Africa. It’s suspected that the 79-year-old didn’t pay his fair share to SARS, and there are meant to be some discrepancies amongst the records.

By the end of next week, we expect any revelations revealed by investigative teams to go public, putting Jacob Zuma in a very awkward position. However, team uBaba is already plotting its next move.

Jacob Zuma responds to tax probe

The Jacob Zuma Foundation posted from its Twitter account that JZ himself was still trying to make sense of ‘strange moves’ within the South African judiciary, and threatened that he would make his move ‘when the time is right’.

“His Excellency President Jacob Zuma is making sense of various developments and strange moves in the country. At the right time, he will make his move.”

Manyi blasts ‘conflicting rulings’

Mzwanele Manyi, a spokesperson for the Foundation, also struggled to contain his apoplexy. Amongst other things, he has branded the judiciary a ‘mess’, and slammed the benches for dishing out verdicts ‘in an inconsistent matter’.

He also vocalised his concerns via social media, suggesting that judges in SA are ‘beyond reproach’. Manyi questioned the neutrality of lawmakers in this country, claiming that Jacob Zuma was being humiliated by them.
