What’s hid­den in Zuma’s bunker?

Mimi North­ern Cape Is there a war that our pres­i­dent is pre­par­ing for that we, as South Africans, don’t know of? He’s been se­cu­rity up­grad­ing as if there’s im­mi­nent dan­ger. You don’t just go around build­ing forts for sweet boko­rol. I don’t think that strong­walled shel­ter has any money in it; maybe it op­er­ates as an ar­moury and has all sorts of ar­tillery – hence the arms deal! Maxwell KwaZulu-Natal Adolf Hitler built his mas­sive un­der­ground bunker for ne­far­i­ous rea­sons. That is now part of world his­tory. Why did Ja­cob Zuma build his in an era of rel­a­tive global peace? It may well be an ar­moury with enough fire­power to pro­tect his loot, dodgy deals, agree­ments and so on. Like with Hitler, it will be un­earthed one day. Melomong North West Ob­vi­ously cash. If the Gup­tas promised Mce­bisi Jonas R600 000 hard cash and asked him to bring a big bag to put it in, it be­came clear why Zuma in­cluded a bunker in the Nkandla ar­chi­tec­tural plan Mi­nenhle Makhanya drew. Bunkers are com­monly used by In­di­ans, not Africans; surely part of the Gup­tas’ cash, in­clud­ing Zuma’s bribe share, is in there, see­ing that the big four banks have frozen the Gup­tas’ bank ac­counts. M Kobe Gaut­eng Fel­low South Africans, bunker or no bunker, Zuma is a li­a­bil­ity to the coun­try and our glo­ri­ous rain­bow na­tion. Can he shelve his pride and con­fess to the el­ders dur­ing their meet­ing and have a peace­ful exit be­fore it’s too late?
