Construction halted at Malema's Sandton home

Building was halted a week ago at the Sandton construction site of Julius Malema's new home - He reportedly owes the builder R400,000

Beeld newspaper reported that Malema was allegedly unable to settle debt of R400,000 owed to his building contractor at the end of March, after which the company decided to transfer its workers to another project in Bedfordview.  

According to Beeld, Malema tried to transfer money from two accounts to pay Kwandisa Construction, but his second transfer failed.

The SA Revenue Service had also reportedly approached Kwandisa Construction with queries about Malema’s financial affairs.

Federico de Gregorio, the owner of Kwandisa Construction, confirmed to the newspaper on Thursday that building had been “temporarily halted”.

He could neither discuss nor confirm rumours that Malema’s account was in arrears, or divulge details about the outstanding amount.

Malema bought the property in September 2009 for R3.6 million, then demolished it to make way for a new three-storey home with an underground parking garage.

@MSG_S what i mean is, even if he cant afford his "plans" he has nothing to lose as he never worked for that money in da first place.... even if he get 100k that would be more than enough.

Charley4sure - Hehehe, perhaps it shows you, that you have been backing the wrong horses. You cheered for Jacob, now you h@e the man. You cheered for Julius. Just waiting for your realisation to kick in, like it did with Jacob.

If you are going to accuse people of not understanding anything you've got to convince them you know what you are talking about and you hold knowledge that is superior to everyone else. It is not the media that instructed the builder to stop construction is it?

Give us some credit dude, if you can't put two and two together that is your problem.

I blame Desmond Tutu, for the troubles faced by the son of soil. This
was supposed to happen to Zuma not the commander in chief. I guess
he prayed for the wrong person. Long live Juju.
