Zille was prevented from visiting President Jacob Zuma's private rural residence, at the centre of a row over a $29-million state-funded upgrade. Police cited safety reasons for denying Zille and her six-member delegation passage to Zuma's homestead, where they wanted to inspect how public money was used to fund the president's private property. ANC supporters formed a barricade near the home, which is a cluster of modern thatched-roof Zulu huts. AFP PHOTO / RAJESH JANTILAL (Photo credit should read RAJESH JANTILAL/AFP/Getty Images)
