JOHANNESBURG - The African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) says it's disappointed but not surprised by a Sunday Times article which it says maliciously attacks presidential hopeful Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma.

The article refers to Jacque Pauw's new book, The President’s Keeper, which contains damning allegations about President Jacob Zuma and Dlamini Zuma.

It’s alleged her presidential campaign is funded by a self-confessed smuggler, fraudster and money launderer.
