The South African government is planning to build a new amusement park near Cape Town modelled on President Jacob Zuma’s homestead in Nkandla, just a day after a report cleared the president from paying for upgrades to his homestead.
In a statement released on Friday, authorities said the move to build a real-life replica of the Nkandla homestead was an attempt to help South Africans come to terms with the police minister’s report.
“We are willing to spend more of their money to make South Africans understand that Nkandla is really for all who can pronounce it,” the statement read.
The ANC, in a statement also released on Friday, said it was an unique opportunity for the president to connect with the nation.
“The so-called Nkandla scandal has provided endless amusement for the president, and he thought this would be a way of giving it back to the people,” the ANC stated.
