Zuma must prove his claims: iLIVE

It is apparent President Jacob Zuma is feeling the heat surrounding his homestead, judging by his emotional showing in parliament.

At a time when he is fighting for his political survival, I am sure he does not need this added pressure.

But, his efforts to play the victim aren't going to garner much sympathy unless he provides proof for his claims.

The only way to make this go away is to provide proof.

Surely detailed accounts and ledgers have been kept of all the costs and where the capital came from?

And what harm or threat is there in showing the public who gave what for the construction of Nkandla?
