About that chimney, mr Prezz, try the LEGO architects.

It took three security agencies, an army of contractors and at least R71-mil 
to secure Prezz JZ's homestead in Nkandla, 
according to a government fact-finding exercise. 

Fire protection alone saw the construction of both a reservoir and a "fire pool", which has a remarkable resemblance to a swimming pool. 
But all of that missed what may be the biggest 
and most glaring threat to the safety of the president, 
a complaint lodged with the public protector this week says: 
a chimney that is far too short.

The Lego Group began in the workshop of Ole Kirk Christiansen, 
a carpenter from Billund, Denmark, who began making wooden toys in 1932.
In 1934, his company came to be called "Lego", 
from the Danish phrase "leg godt", which means "play well". 
It expanded to producing plastic toys in 1947.
Around 560 billion Lego parts had been produced.
