CAPE TOWN – The Hawks have on Wednesday arrived at journalist Jacques Pauw’s restaurant and house in Riebeek Kasteel in the Western Cape.

His wife, Sam, sounded frightened and said she did not know if they wanted to arrest Jacques or simply search.

eNCA understands the raid has ended now.

Pauw’s recent book The President’s Keepers, revealed how former president Jacob Zuma had been propped up for years by people protecting him in the Hawks, National Prosecuting Authority, Crime Intelligence, police and State Security Agency.

The book also details Zuma’s apparent financial recklessness before he became president.
