"It sticks out like a sore thumb amid a sea of poverty, this opulent display by the president," said Mr Maimane, head of the Democratic Alliance. 

Jacob Zuma, South Africa President, has made upgrades to his private estate in Nkandla country retreat in KwaZulu Natal, 120 miles north of Durban. A total of 246 million Rand, approximately SG$23 million, worth of tax-payer funds was spent on the renovations he has made.Mr Zuma claims that the work was carried out without his knowledge, and that the money was spent on necessary security provision for a head of state.

Citizens of S. Africa are requesting for the funds to be paid back to public funds according to the National Treasury yesterday.

Feel sorry for the people in S. Africa suffering in poverty.
