South African President Jacob Zuma has today been admitted to hospital for tests, according to a statement from the South African presidency’s website. 

On Friday, President Zuma was advised to rest following a demanding election and transition programme to the new administration.
Doctors are said to be satisfied with his condition.
President Zuma was recently elected for a second five-year term on Wednesday by the ANC-dominated parliament.
Jacob Zuma is the most colourful and controversial president South Africa has had since white-minority rule ended in 1994.
His credibility was most severely damaged in March when an independent inquiry, led by South Africa’s Public Protector Thuli Madonsela, found the government had improperly spent money on upgrading his private residence, including building a cattle enclosure, amphitheatre and swimming pool, at a cost of about $23m (£13.8m).

  1. This greedy old man is a disgrace to South Africa and Africa in general! A man who has no problem herding a bunch of women under his belt (supposedly as his wives– but we know better), has no business running a country. He should retire and look after his cattle whose enclosure cost $23 million!! Lord help Africa!
