The presidency today defended President Jacob Zuma's comments on caring for dogs as being part of white culture, saying the remarks were aimed at decolonising the African mind.

 On Wednesday, members of the media  quoted Zuma as saying that spending money to buy a dog and taking it to the vet and for walks was part of white culture.

Zuma was giving a speech at Impendle in KwaZulu-Natal.This created a stir on social network Twitter on Thursday.

Zuma's spokesperson Mac Maharaj said the comments were meant to start a debate on reconciliation.

The ANC parliamentary caucus slammed the media for trivialising comments.
