The "leaks" are false flag incidents committed ZANC spooks and intended to be used as distractions from the actual contents of reports. Its worked for them before but we are wiser now. You have been told the facts now do not forget them. Or else.

And, Thuli what do you expect the public to do with all the information you are busy publishing. Like you said, in the past you used to write to the president and you will have a private meeting to discuss whatever you felt was not right at that point of time and what brought the change then? You know very well that the president did not personal go into the government coffers and sign/authorise those big cheques for the renovations but somebody did. Thuli you are to trying hard to make everyone happy and its not gonna happen.

Explain Minenhle, the architect that came up with the structure and design of the Nkandla harem, and who was introduced by Zuma to the Dep of Public Works. Also explain how Zuma flies home in a helicopter every weekend and never bother to ask what is going on at his harem when he sees major renovations taking place.

It is a norm that officials once in a while do leak information, sometimes with good intention-for the good of the country and justice and fairness. The reason why this caused a problem it is because it was against the very same reason that is controversial, so senior ANC members like Mantashe who want to defend Zuma were not happy. The official could have leaked in order to inform citizens before the letter was classified. we know ANC is prone to run for classification. we would have never known about Nkandla, Guptas, Arms deal, Watergate, Travelgate, Zuma's daughter getting a COS position, etc if they were not leaked, this information would have been hidden within the corridors of the parliament. And we must be thankful to those ANC members leaking such information, they do it out of the goodness of their heart.
