Democratic Alliance (DA) Leader Mmusi Maimane is heading to the Union Buildings in Pretoria to go through President Jacob Zuma’s declaration of interests documents.

“I will be viewing the President’s declaration of interests documents, with a particular eye on whether he declared the R1 million per year salary he received from his friend and tender mogul, Roy Moodley’s company [Royal Security], during the first few months of his Presidency,” said Maimane.

Maimane said in a statement on Friday, DA was offered an opportunity to view the documents on November 13, 2017 after he [Maimane] made a written request to the Presidency’s Director-General Dr Cassius Lubisi.

The request to access the documents follows recent  Parliamentary question by Maimane to President Zuma whether he declared the R1 million per year salary he allegedly received from Royal Security company during the first few months of his  administration.

When I asked him to clarify this in Parliament last week, said Maimane, Zuma responded by saying “I did not receive payments from private individuals or companies during my tenure as President, other than those disclosed or reported to the necessary authorities.

“Therefore it is vital to confirm that the President did in fact declare this salary, and that he paid the appropriate tax in terms of the Income Tax Act,” said Maimane.

Maimane said the President’s declaration of interests is a public document as per the Executive Ethics Act. Section 7.5 of the Code  which allows any person access to the public part of a register during office hours of the secretary concerned.

“If the R1 million per month salary has not been declared as required by the Executive Ethics Act, the DA will consider what further action is appropriate,” said Maimane.

“President Zuma is subject to the law like any other citizen, and DA will ensure he is treated as such,” added Maimane.
