President Jacob Zuma’s homestead/compound between Kranskop and Eshowe in the greater Nkandla District

The security upgrades at President Jacob Zuma’s private home in Nkandla, KwaZulu-Natal are a controversy. Following the Public Protector’s report into the upgrades, which found that Zuma and his family had unduly benefited from the upgrades, Zuma¬†asked the Special Investigating Unit to look into the upgrades. Meanwhile, media reports citing figures spent have swirled.

I collated the data into this infographic for NoW!, which can be accessed on SlideShare since NoW! was shut down.
