Pictures not true reflection of Zuma's Nkandla home, says former spokesperson

Is Nkandla falling apart?

Pictures circulating on social media are showing former president Jacob Zuma's compound in a bad state.

The pictures also show broken fences and litter filling some part of the yard.

Clement Manyathela speaks to Eyewitness News reporter Nkosikhona Duma on what officials in KwaZulu-Natal had to say.

This morning I had the opportunity to speak to the Nkandla mayor Themba Ntuli, who said to me they will not get involved in the matter of the former president's house because it is a private house.

I then spoke to the former spokesperson of the president who said the pictures are not a true reflection of the former president's house and he says the former president remains very safe and well taken care of by the state.
