Poisonous allegations: the spokesperson, the president, his wife (and her lover)

    Poison Denied

    On the weekend The Sunday Times published sensational claims, relying on anonymous sources, alleging that President Jacob Zuma’s second wife, Nompumelelo Ntuli-Zuma was involved in a “poison plot” against her husband. We’re kinda disappointed that there’s nothing about this in the Spy Cables.

    This isn’t the first time Ntuli-Zuma has been the subject of rumours about the state of her relationship with Zuma: speculation that she had an affair with her bodyguard continues to haunt her.

    Meanwhile, with no hard evidence at hand, presidential spokesperson Mac Maharaj has dismissed the report as gossip and speculation. Ma Ntuli didn’t do it. Nobody saw her do it. Can’t prove anything.
