South Africans call online for Zuma's ouster after report on spending
Thousands of South Africans on Saturday called online for the impeachment of President Jacob Zuma, after a newspaper revealed a government document detailing the use of public funds for lavish upgrades to his private home. The Mail and Guardian weekly said on Friday a provisional report by South Africa's top anti-corruption watchdog found Zuma had derived "substantial" personal gain from a $21 million "security upgrade" to his home, including a swimming pool and a cattle enclosure. The leaked document by the Public Protector Thuli Madonsela, entitled "Opulence on a Grand Scale", recommended that Zuma repay some of the public funds from the improvements to his compound at Nkandla in the hills of KwaZulu-Natal province. The report of Madonsela's investigation sparked outrage on social media, with prominent campaigner Zackie Achmat setting up an online petition calling for Zuma's ouster that had garnered 8,200 supporters a little over 24 hours after the news broke.

He is one dodgy bastard, he doesn't have the IQ to try and cover things up. Recently the UK sent 19 million to South Africa, Zuma spent 17.5 million upgrading his palace while his own people are living in conditions I wouldn't let a dog live in.
