President Jacob Zuma’s second wife Nompumelelo Ntuli has been kicked out of Zuma’s Nkandla home following suspicions that she poisoned the president sometime last year, reported the Sunday Times.

Last year Zuma was hospitalized about a month after the elections. The official statement that was released by the presidency said he was tired and had gone to hospital for tests. However, the Sunday Times has revealed that the president was actually ill. According to the newspaper, Zuma’s personal physician, who has since been removed from his position, is believed to have misdiagnosed his ailment and prescribed medication which resulted in him becoming disoriented. The president only discovered two months later while travelling in the US that he had been poisoned. After his trip to the US, he went to Russia for further diagnosis and treatment. Russian doctors reportedly confirmed that he had indeed been poisoned. It is reported that this made Zuma very angry. He suspected that he had been poisoned by someone in his family, someone who had access to his food. The first suspect that came to his mind was his second wife MaNtuli.

The relationship between Zuma and MaNtuli is believed to have grown sour over the past few years, ever since MaNtuli was reported to have had an extramarital affair. The president suspects that it could be her unhappiness at being sidelined that motivated her to poison him.

In January it was rumoured that MaNtuli had been kicked out of Zuma’s Nkandla home. These rumours were supported by her absence from the state of the nation address while Zuma’s other three wives attended.

Zuma’s brother confirmed that MaNtuli has moved out of Nkandla. However, he said he didn’t know the reasons as to why she moved out and was still looking for answers. MaNtuli is said to be currently staying in Durban with her three children.

The Presidency dismissed the poisoning allegations as gossip and declined to comment further.
