Civic organisation South African National Civic Organisation in North West has blamed the province’s MEC for Agriculture for the reported delivery of a herd of cattle, meant for emerging farmers, to former president Jacob Zuma‘s Nkandla homestead.

This follows weekend newspaper reports that a herd of Bonsmara cows costing R1.5-million was delivered to Nkandla in October 2016.

Sanco in the province has called for the MEC for Rural, Environment and Agriculture Development, Manketse Tlhape, to be sacked. However the Hawks are investigating allegations that it was provincial Premier Supra Mahumapelo who sent the cattle to Zuma’s homestead as a gift.
