State Security Minister Siyabonga Cwele had on November 21 warned media to stop publishing photographs or footage of Zuma's rural home, arguing that doing so was in violation of security laws. But newspapers ignored the warning and on November 22 splashed on their front pages pictures of Zuma's lavishly-refurbished homestead, photographs that have previously run in the media with no government repercussions.
