“To date, we have been billed for R398,271,” correctional services spokesperson Singabakho Nxumalo said on Wednesday.Nxumalo said the issue of paying for Zuma's private hospital medical costs “is being discussed, considering the presidential privileges that Mr Zuma enjoys”.
The JG Zuma Foundation said on Tuesday that the former president was meeting his legal team in hospital to discuss a range of issues.“This is just to confirm that President Zuma is still in hospital but he is going to be engaging with his lawyers on a whole range of issues,” said spokesperson headtopics.com
Mzwanele Manyi.Zuma was granted medical parole 58 days after he was admitted as an inmate at the Estcourt Correctional Services facility in KwaZulu-Natal.The former president started serving his sentence in July, after he was found guilty of contempt of court for failure to comply with an order of the Constitutional Court to honour a summons to appear before the state capture commission.
He was sentenced to 15 months behind bars and spent several weeks of incarceration in the medical wing of the prison before he was moved to an external hospital for further treatment. Read more: Times LIVE »

Whose going to pay the money 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Vandal elikhulu. Even Ramaphosa will enjoy presidential priveleges, don't annoy us 🤮 Why so much, who must pay? Nice Even after being convicted? KandaceNzinga We are leaderless under Cyril Ramaphosa. You can not send a 80 year old pensioner and expect him to be physical, mentally and emotional healthly. President should have avoided this by granting Zuma presidential pardon not medical parole.
This is really a banana republic. KandaceNzinga Why this should be the news in the first place Why is he not in a government facility? They want to NHI everything so is the government hospitals not good enough? Thousands of people all over the country are struggling for decent basic health care and hospitalisation but one man who helped rape our economy and blatantly defies the law gets gold private medical treatment even when in prison. Why not Addington hospital?
Hawks nab man paying R50 000 bribe to cop investigating his relative's caseA 42-year-old man who was nabbed in an undercover operation has been charged with corruption. 😅🤣😂 I know them Well done SAPS members
This while rural schools all over the country still have pit latrines and hundreds of children still die from lack of safe drinking water a year in our country. It’s heartbreaking 💔 Enjoy yourself Msholozi. Don't all other sick prisoners go to government hospitals? So all are equal.....but sum are more equal than others......
Obviously tax payers money. Why must we fit the bill. Let him rent out rooms in nkandla and get the money to pay. Who is paying De Klerk's bill at the hospital and how much is it by the way since you are digging into former presidents hospital bills? Hefty hey!. 🤣🤣🤣That's all Shabbir Schaik's tactics.... All was planned b4 He was taken into so called prison... Zuma was never incarcerated... That was to confuse the opposition those who forced him to be investigated. Zuma knew all the plans that's why he handed himself.
Sbu_nation1985 Wonder how much state spend on the last president of apartheid, De Klerk the man who butchered innocent black people So with presidential privileges in prison does he have his bodyguards there too? 😂😂😂😂
Nearly 100 000 violent criminals freed without DNA-samplingAction Society has given Ramaphosa and the security cluster until 20 September to comply with demands, or face legal action.
That money is too little; how much is the cost of Pik Botha retirement, cost of De Klerk to stay alive, cost of DD to fly to Russia for medical, etc. Chew it Zuma, they voted you when they were drank with power of ANC The department of correctional services sent him there since he was a prisoner. 🤣 Grifters keeping graft rolling.
So he wasn’t at 1Military Hospital? Ja ne. This newspaper lies last time you told us he was admitted at SANF hospital. So a convicted criminal STILL enjoys presidential privileges. 😳😳Must be nice to be Zuma. Kgane banna re jele eng sa ga Zuma a re hlakiša ka mokgwa wo?Gape re dula re mopatelela dikoloto tše a itsentšhitšeng go tšona

Forward the bill to NKANDHLA HOMESTEAD!!! I didn't read this article as it clearly trying to get him to lose his presidential privileges Zuma loves SA, he refused to be examined by doctors because he didn't want the bill to be above a million Oops sorry. We are Zuma fatigue. PresidentZuma mos 😊
Alleged riots instigator Bonginkosi Khanyile granted R5,000 bailThe 31-year-old was arrested by the Hawks on August 20 at his Wits University student residence. He was charged with inciting public violence, holding an illegal gathering and not wearing a face mask in public during unrest and looting in Durban in July. The boy was inspired by freedom fighters who went to jail and came back to occupy government positions, I doubt if he'll achieve that it's no longer relevant Surprising how everyone gets charged for not wearing masks except anc politicians During Lockdown level 5, more than 50 ANC comrades attended Mlangeni's funeral which was illegal and Mpumalanga Premier was seen on national TV without a face mask (which was supposed to be mandatory) during Jackson Mthembu's funeral. Wenzen uBonginkosi Khanyile?
