South Africa's ex-President, Jacob Zuma, has inked a recording deal slammed as 'slush fund'

5 month ago

Jacob Zuma, 76, former South African president, signed a registration agreement, adding a new adventure to his controversial political career.

Thembinkosi Ngcobo, Head of Parks, Recreation and Culture at eThekwini: Zuma will not charge any fees for the recording of her favorite songs in order to preserve the nation's heritage.

Nevertheless, opponents have criticized the agreement, which should be presented to local lawmakers, as a waste of resources.

"This city is not an ANC slush fund and we will not tolerate its continued capture and abuse!" Graham posted Wednesday on Facebook, referring to Zuma's ruling African National Congress, which called him to resign in February.

Zuma once fell out of favor in the midst of a series of corruption-related scandals. He was often accused of using the government's resources to finance his lifestyle while he was in office.

Zuma can sing. Local officials have announced that the registration agreement was reached after eThekwini officials, including the political base of Zuma's hometown of KwaZulu-Natal, realized there was no archive of the songs of liberation from the period of the anti-apartheid struggle.
