President’s Keepers: 5 Damaging Allegations Against Zuma

Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma pocketed a “salary” of R1 million a month from a controversial tender mogul without declaring it to the South African Revenue Service (SARS). 

This claim is contained in a new book by former investigative journalist Jacques Pauw.

The President’s Keepers, Pauw’s fifth nonfiction book, hits the shelves this week, and further contains the following startling revelations about Zuma, his ex-wife and ANC presidential candidate Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma and a network of shady characters who Pauw claims keep Zuma in power:

*A possible candidate for the Hawks’ top job was accompanied by Duduzane Zuma, the president’s son, to meet the Guptas in Saxonwold before his interview with a ministerial panel;

* Nomgcobo Jiba, the National Prosecuting Authority’s (NPA) disgraced former head, was a covert crime intelligence agent, and
President Jacob Zuma

* Dlamini-Zuma’s campaign to become the ANC’s next president is partly being funded by Adriano Mazzotti, an alleged tobacco smuggler who, according to an affidavit in Pauw’s possession, admitted to bribing public officials, laundering money and committing fraud. Mazzotti is a known funder of Julius Malema’s EFF.

In one chapter, Pauw details how a SARS official in 2010 discovered that Zuma had been receiving payments of R1m a month from Royal Security, a company owned by Durban businessman and well-known ANC-supporter Roy Moodley.

The payments were made during the 2009-’10 tax year and Zuma received his “salary” from Moodley’s company for at least four months after he became president in 2009, according to the book.

The company allegedly failed to pay SARS the necessary Pay As You Earn (PAYE) tax on their “employee’s” salary, and Zuma also allegedly failed to declare this boon from Royal Security to the tax collector.

According to Pauw, the matter caused for considerable ructions within SARS after the revenue collector raised red flags about the undeclared income.

News24 has previously revealed that a technology firm that won a multibillion-rand contract from the Passenger Rail Agency (Prasa) channeled R550m to another of Moodley’s companies for no apparent business reason.

The Presidency on Sunday rejected allegations based on a new book that contains explosive claims about President Jacob Zuma’s financial and tax affairs.

''President Zuma has declared to the relevant authorities all income received and allegations contained in the reports are misleading and are clearly part of the ongoing smear campaigns,'' said The Presidency in a statement.

''The tax matters of the President are in order… The President has also not received any information related to taxes linked to the Nkandla upgrades.'' - Daily Sun
