Former Libyan President Muammar Gaddafi died on October 20, 2011. After his death, inquiries were made about the immense fortune of the late president.

Since Monday, April 08, 2019, investigators have reopened the file on the property of disappeared Gaddafi. After some thorough investigation, it seems that these funds would have passed through the home of former President Jacob Zuma for eSwatini (Swaziland).

In 2017, a UN Security Council report was a multi-billion dollar Libya that would be distributed in several African countries, much of which is in South Africa. But for now, accurate and verifiable information on the amount of this alleged money is non-existent.

On April 7, the Sunday Times published an article claiming that Jacob Zuma had $ 30 million from former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. According to the media, this amount was stored in 2011 in the private residence of Mr. Zuma before being transferred to Eswatini, former Swaziland, and that King Mswati III was informed.

Faced with these numerous allegations, the former South African President broke the silence. In a tweet, Jacob Zuma denied the information that he held the considerable amount of $ 30 million, which would come from the coffers of Muammar Gaddafi.

According to the media, the former president denied the allegations on Tuesday, April 09, 2019.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I owe millions of dollars in court fees (…) I now hear that I kept money belonging to my late brother Gaddafi. Where is this money because His Majesty [Mswati III, current King of Eswatini, ed] does not know? “He wrote in particular.

According to the Sunday Times, the money should have been used to guarantee the exile of the former Libyan leader in case he was arrested and brought to court; where in the other case, be handed over to his family if he was killed. The leader was actually killed on October 20, 2011 in a rebel-force offensive supported by Western powers.
