The former president, Jacob Zuma addressed a welcome home interfaith prayer service in his hometown of Nkandla on Thursday.
EWN reporter Clement Manyathela explains what Zuma said at the service hosted by the National Interfaith Council of South Africa.
The former president spoke about his upbringing and time in the struggle and the ANC.
He criticised some within the ANC, as well as in opposition parties who, he says, have made sure this inquiry comes to fruition. He spoke about how the term state capture is being misused. It implies that all three arms of the state are captured, and this is not the case he said.
Manyathela adds that Zuma says he built his homestead in Nkandla with his own money and counters those who have accused him of having stolen money to build it. Zuma says there has been no evidence of money stolen.
He also spoke about land issues, reports Manyathela and on the subject of his upcoming court appearance, he said he is not scared.
