M&G Hangout: Zuma payments

South Africans are reeling in the wake of the news published in Friday's Mail & Guardian about new evidence of President Jacob Zuma's shocking financial affairs.

Watch our weekly live video below, where we put your questions to the investigative team behind the report.

The KPMG report on Zuma’s financial affairs we are reporting on paints the most detailed and distressing picture available of a kept politician, not just unable, but unwilling to live within his means, dependent on an array of benefactors to fund his lifestyle and willing to grant some of them favours in return.

The report also makes it clearer than ever that the 2009 decision to drop corruption charges against Zuma was political rather than legal.
