Former president Jacob Zuma has broken the silence over the alleged stolen money to build his Nkandla home while in office.

Zuma while addressing a welcome home prayer service at his hometown of Nkandla on Thursday said there is no proof that he stole money to build his Nkandla home.

“Ba belellwa ukuthu ngekeuwakhe umuzio nje emakhaya. Bathikusho ukuthu nga yo ntshontsha le mali, ngi ngayintshontshnga. Kwa phenywa kwaphnyisiswa ayizange e se etholakale ukuthunga nga ntshontsha emali.kodwa a manga se bawaqambile kulolonke lezwi. Ngine mfundisoyo ku kholwa ne ye sintu ukuthu uku ntshontsha a kulunganga.”

They fought me for having built such a house in a village. They authomatically assumed that I must have stolen the money. There were many investigations, but those investigations failed to prove that I used stolen money to build my home. They have spread lies about me, even to the international community. I was taught values and those include not to steal anything that does not belong to you.

Zuma says he was raised to believe in God and even when he joined politics he never forgot his Christian background.

The former president says there’s also no proof that some of the country’s leaders speaking to the Gupta family have been captured.

Zuma says the allegations were the handiwork of his enemies as those against him tried and failed to prove he stole money to build his home. ')}
