Shocking taped conversation leads to Nkandla

Shocking taped conversation leads to Nkandla

Leaked phone recording draws spotlight on to financial and political ambitions of Zuma’s women.

For the past month the South African media and many members of parliament have been in possession of a recording of an extremely shocking telephone conversation leaked to them via WhatsApp.

None doubt that it is genuine, but all of them – bar one – have been too afraid to go public with it.

Neither of the speakers in the telephone conversation – a man and a woman – is identified by name and none of the recipients of the leaked recording, including Noseweek, has been able so far  to identify either of them conclusively. (The man is once addressed as Bonga, familiar short form for Bongani, a very common first name.)

The drift of the conversation is so scandalous that publication must seriously damage the reputation of anyone positively identified as one of the speakers.

Listen to the tape here.
