Former president Jacob Zuma is alleged to be broke and on the verge of selling off one of his high rise houses in one of three major cities in South Africa. The former president was alleged to have said he needs a lot of money to run his family upkeep and has decided to put one of his  expansive and expensive  property on the line to raise the required fund.

The erstwhile leader had three houses in Durban‚ Pretoria and Cape Town when he was president of the republic.

Zuma is unarguably a polygamist and has a large nuclear and extended family with five wives, twenty-one children and several grandchildren including hundreds of dependants  who still look up to him in terms of  their welfare.
