'Nkandla police station an old plan'

By Sapa | Dec 11, 2012 | COMMENTS [ 86 ]

"The Inkosi... requested the SAPS [SA Police Service] to build a police station in the Ubumbano area as a result of ongoing faction fighting and crime in the area."

The construction of a police station in President Jacob Zuma's hometown of Nkandla was part of a "long process" and not linked to the upgrades to Zuma's home, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Monday.

"This construction marks the culmination of a long process that was initiated in 1995," Colonel Jay Naicker said in a statement.

"The Inkosi... requested the SAPS [SA Police Service] to build a police station in the Ubumbano area as a result of ongoing faction fighting and crime in the area."

He said the SAPS felt it necessary to "put matter into proper perspective" after the Sunday Times printed a front-page report on the station.

The newspaper reported that the "state-of-the-art" station was being built "on the doorstep of Zuma's rural homestead".

It had "established" that Zuma was updated by consultants commissioned to conduct an environmental management assessment for the station.

Nkandla has recently been in public eye, after it emerged that the president's private residence in the town was undergoing a reported R200 million upgrade.

Naicker said: " We would like to expressly intimate that there was nothing untoward in this regard as we welcome this community-police partnership demonstrated in this project.

"Rural development remains a very crucial aspect of service delivery in

the SAPS."

They say they are going to build a ' state of the art' police station. Not a school, not a clinic. Surely every police officer in South Africa is applying for a tranfer to Inkandla police station as we speak. The best police station in South Africa with zuma pictures hanging on all four walls.
Jeeer! thy just play around with our money like a six year old spoilt kid in a supermarket.

An honorary doctorate is a high-level academic recognition granted by a university to a recipient without completion of the normal requirements for that degree.
