Police minister Bheki Cele will on Thursday meet former president Jacob Zuma at his Nkandla home in northern KwaZulu-Natal.

Cele’s spokesperson Lirandzu Themba confirmed the meeting.

Themba could not elaborate on the context of the meeting.

However, Cele’s visit comes a day before the third quarterly crimes stats will be released in Pretoria.

Cele’s visit follows Zuma’s defiance of a Constitutional Court order to appear before the commission of inquiry into state capture, which has been widely reported on in recent weeks.

This is a developing story.
