When you’re wealthy, renting of house gives way to owning a large mansion and a gorgeous home, taking an aircraft instead of a car for transportation, replacing robber bands with a gold watch, and wearing Gucci slides instead of vibrantly colored garden ones.
The Gupta brothers bought “JZ” this magnificent house in 2016.
The residence, which includes 10 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms, is situated in Emirates Hills, which is referred to be Dubai’s “most expensive postal code,” on Lailak Street.
Robert Mugabe, the late president of Zimbabwe, also rented a house on this part of the street. Robert Mugabe’s home He paid R7.5 million (about $500k) in rent each year (Image from: theindependent.co.zw)
Jacob Zuma’s house resembles a palace fit for a king with its ornate patterns and interior decor. The décor has crystal gemstones and gold trim, which provide a stunning contrast with the room’s white walls and ceiling. To match its regal facade, the interior of the house is furnished with marble and oak floors.
The home is bordered by the rich foliage of the Montgomerie golf course and offers wonderful distant views of the city.
Information about the enormous mansion first became public during the “Gupta Leaks,” when emails and between 100,000 and 200,000 other documents linked to state capture in South Africa found their way to the investigative teams of amaBhungane and the Daily Maverick.
According to Businesstech.co.za, the residence was also included in the letter that the Gupta brothers are believed to have sent to the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi on President Jacob Zuma’s behalf.
“I am happy to inform you that my family has decided to make the UAE, and specifically Dubai, a second home and has already acquired a villa located in Emirates Hills, Dubai (Villa No. L-35, Lailak Street No. 1),” the letter that was released, said.
According to celebritynetworth.com, Zuma is one of the richest politicians in the world, with a personal net worth of about $20 million (R350 million) as of 2021.
Many have claimed that he is worth far more than that because it’s possible he hasn’t disclosed all of his holdings.
The Life of Jacob Zuma is a great source of motivation and inspiration for the young people in your life. Success takes time, so start small and before you know it, you’ll be able to breathe in the heavens.
