A journalist has alleged in a new book that President Jacob Zuma forced himself upon her and gave her a “long, determined kiss” before she managed to pull away.

The Sowetan reported how an unnamed journalist made the accusation in a new book, “Khwezi”, about the late Fezekile Ntsukela Kuzwayo who, in 2005, accused Zuma of raping her.

 He was acquitted of the charge in 2006.

The book describes how Zuma invited a female journalist to his home in Forest Town, the same house where Kuzwayo, who became known as Khwezi to protect her identity, accused Zuma of assaulting her.

 After Zuma called his aide aside for a private conversation, the aide subsequently left.

Author Redi Tlhabi writes that Zuma then asked the journalist to accompany him to another room as he wanted to show her something.
