Zuma took our money - EFF

Johannesburg - EFF members sang about President Jacob Zuma and the money spent on Nkandla as they waited for party leader Julius Malema to address them on Friday night.

"u Zuma o thate i mali yethu" (Zuma has taken our money), they sang in Boksburg, on the East Rand, at an event to celebrate women's month.

The song was a reference to the R246m spent on security upgrades to Zuma's Nkandla, KwaZulu-Natal homestead. Public Protector Thuli Madonsela recommended in her report on Nkandla that Zuma repay that part of the money not spent on security features, like a swimming pool, cattle kraal, and visitors' centre.

Last Thursday EFF MPs disrupted questions to Zuma in the National Assembly by chanting "pay back the money".

At Friday's event about 100 Economic Freedom Fighters members dressed in red berets and overalls sang struggle songs as they waited for Malema, including one paying homage to ANC veteran Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.

All I know is that he is paying bond then no bond, but the Zuma trust fund is paying for the home and then it was ''no all the tax money was for the security'' and they was fire pool. Really? Now what's next? What about? "I didn't ask for any the money". Politics is comedy these days. I look forward for another funny lie the next day.

Black people are given opportunities left, right and centre nowadays, but no they dont want that, they want to sit and keep demanding things from goverment, like RDP houses, there was nothing like that in the apartheid era, thats why they studied and became proffessionals like nurses, lawyers etc. Goverment doesnt owe anyone, get up from your lazy bum, take charge of your life instead of waiting for freebies that you dont even deserve, lazy*ss. Yeah, im talking to you.
