Reading Time: < 1 minute

United Democratic Movement leader Bantu Holomisa has called on President Cyril Ramaphosa to explain whether the KwaZulu-Natal government used any taxpayers’ money to support former president Jacob Zuma at the High Court in Durban.

KwaZulu-Natal Premier Willis Mchunu, MECs Sihle Zikalala, Weziwe Thusi, and Mthandeni Dlungwana as well as Ethekwini Executive Mayor Zandile Gumede were among officials who attended Zuma’s court appearance on Friday.

Holomisa wants an official investigation into whether KwaZulu-Natal is a federal state.

“But of concern to me is the appearance of the premier and entire cabinet to this case and one wonders how much did the KwaZulu-Natal government pay to bus those people who were in attendance – clearly Cyril Ramaphosa the president of the republic needs to clarify exactly as to whether KZN is a federal state or what.”
