South African President, Jacob Zuma poisoned by his wife

Following months of speculation about the whereabouts of one of President Jacob Zuma’s wives, Nompumelelo Ntuli-Zuma it appears she has been banned from his Nkandla compound following revelations of her suspected involvement in a plot to poison the president.zIt has reported that in early August last year, during a trip to the US, doctors diagnosed an ailing Zuma as having been poisoned. However, not trusting US doctors, Zuma went to Russia later that month for treatment. Russian doctors reportedly confirmed the diagnosis.

The newspaper reported that although a direct link between Ntuli-Zuma and the poison plot could not be established, it is understood that the president believes she was involved due to her unhappiness at having been sidelined as a wife following reports of her extramarital affair a few years ago.

Zuma reportedly believes that only someone within his immediate family circle could be responsible for trying to poison him – someone with access to his food.
zzA senior intelligence source has however confirmed the poisoning incident and said Zuma discovered it while in Washington in August. At the time he had been very ill. Later that month he made a short trip to Russia where doctors confirmed the poisoning diagnosis.

Ntuli-Zuma has meanwhile since been moved to a house in Durban North with her three children and has reportedly been removed from the president’s travel roster. She was also absent from Zuma’s recent state of the nation address and was also not at the annual Christmas party hosted by the president in December.zzzSpeculation has been rife these past few months as to the status of Ntuli-Zuma. Last month iw was reported that she had been ousted from the president’s spousal office.

According to the presidency’s website, the spousal office “supports the spouses of the president and deputy president in their partnership role in presidential, ceremonial, state and executive functions and in all other duties and responsibilities related to their positions as spouses”.

At the time, Presidency spokesperson Mac Maharaj said no comment was available.

Earlier, the Sunday Sun published an article in which it claimed that Ntuli-Zuma, commonly known as MaNtuli, had been excluded from the spousal office following tension in her marriage.-AfricaMetro
