If you think about it, though, the taxpayer will still be paying for Nkandla since the taxpayer pays JZ’s salary…
The presidency has warned that scam artists are trying to fleece South Africans by asking them to deposit money into accounts to help President Jacob Zuma pay his R7.8m Nkandla bill.
It has been reported that KZN ANC has asked its members to help fund Zuma’s Nkandla repayment, but the presidency has warned that no public fund has been established.
“No account has been opened for this purpose and no request has been made for members of the public to contribute,” spokesperson Bongani Ngqulunga said on Tuesday.
This after the National Treasury on Monday said Zuma had to pay R7.8m as a “reasonable amount” for the upgrades to his Nkandla homestead.
“The Presidency wishes to alert members of the public to beware of scams on social media where people are asked to deposit money into bank accounts in support of President Jacob Zuma. Such requests have fraudulently been made in light of the submission of the Nkandla homestead non-security upgrades report to the Constitutional Court by the National Treasury,” Ngqulunga said.
So, if you see anybody hustling with some crowd-funding campaign, online or in person, don’t fall for it.
If you think about it, though, you’re still gonna be paying back the money since JZ’s salary gets paid by the taxpayer. So, essentially, he’s just using your money to pay back the money… inception! Tax payers also paid for all the legal fees in the dragged on saga. There’s no escaping this one.
