Nkandla report released in two weeks

The report relating to upgrades at President Jacob Zuma's Nkandla homestead will be released in two weeks, the Public Protector's office said on Thursday.

"Advocate Thuli Madonsela will release her final report on the investigation into allegations of improper conduct and maladministration relating to security installations and upgrades at the private residence of President Zuma," spokeswoman Kgalalelo Masibi said.

A media briefing was scheduled for March 19 at her office in Pretoria.

More than R200 million was allegedly used for what was described as security upgrades at the Nkandla residence in KwaZulu-Natal.

In November, the Mail&Guardian reported that Madonsela had found in her preliminary report that Zuma had misled Parliament and benefited substantially from the upgrade.

An inter-ministerial task team report on the Nkandla expenditure was released in December, after it was declassified, confirming that a total of R206,420,644 was spent on the upgrade.

Public Works Minister Thulas Nxesi, who initially classified the report, said at its release that allegations that Zuma had used State resources to build and upgrade the residence were unfounded.

In January, the newspaper reported that a leaked public protector letter showed that former top cop Bheki Cele failed to stop wasteful expenditure at the Nkandla home.

I very much doubt it. One threat of grants being withdrawn, and the majority of the voters return to their base party. One t shirt and grocery packet, and everyone is back home in the tribal party. The important upside is that there is relative stability which job providers desperately need.
