An outspoken critic of President Jacob Zuma, comedian Trevor Noah took a jab at him once again.

The funnyman has taken a break from his talk show in the US to tour his home country once again.

He made headlines earlier this year for purchasing a R130-million penthouse in New York. According to The Wall Street Journal, the three-bedroom duplex at Stella Tower was listed for $11.495 million, and the Empire State Building is visible from the master bathroom.

In an interview with Metro FM, Trevor said people shouldn’t worry about his house because he bought it with his own money and that back in the US, his house wasn’t really considered expensive.

“I was just like, it’s funny that people are worried about a house I bought with my own money, when our president is buying houses with our money, but people are keeping quiet about that one. So I tell people I bought two houses, one in Nkandla and one in New York,” he said.
