Zuma: I do not own property in Dubai
In a written response to Parliament, the president affirms he has no property outside of SA and that he’s never asked anybody to buy property abroad on his behalf.
In a written response to Parliament, he affirms he has no property outside of South Africa, and that he’s never asked anybody to buy property abroad on his behalf.
Last month, the Sunday Times reported the controversial Gupta family had bought the president a mansion in the United Arab Emirates.
President Zuma is sticking to his response that reports of him owning property abroad are a fabrication.
In a written reply to questions posed by the Congress of the People (Cope), Zuma says he has not sought any residency outside of South Africa for himself or his immediate family.
Asked what steps he is taking to verify the information contained in the Gupta emails, Zuma says anyone with information of wrongdoing should inform law enforcement agencies so they can investigate.
Zuma says a proper investigation of all state capture allegations will be conducted, once the Gauteng High Court has dealt with his legal challenge of the Public Protector’s report in October, and clarified the contentious issues.
