South African police summon author of book critical of Zuma

The South African author of
a book critical of President Jacob Zuma said on Thursday he had
been summoned by police, but no reason had been given for the
meeting.

"The President's Keepers – Those keeping Zuma in power and
out of prison" by journalist Jacques Pauw alleges millions of
dollars in taxpayers' money flowed into the bank accounts of
spies and members of Zuma's government.

The president's office has denied the accusations in the
book.

Pauw confirmed in an interview with eNCA television that his
attorney had received a request for him to meet with police on
Monday or Tuesday.

"We don't know what the meeting is about. Anyway, we are
going to cooperate," Pauw said.

South Africa's State Security Agency said last month it had
made a criminal complaint against Pauw relating to the
contravention of several sections of the Intelligence Services
Act.
