SIU to finalise Nkandla report

2014-06-12 11:27

A report into security upgrades to President Jacob Zuma’s private Nkandla homestead in KwaZulu-Natal is in the process of being finalised, the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) has said.

The SIU confirmed today it had submitted a provisional report to Zuma.

“Following a request for a progress report on its investigation, the SIU submitted a progress report to the presidency on April 5 2014,” SIU spokesperson Boy Ndala said.

“The SIU is in the process of compiling its final report.”

The SIU declined to comment on the contents of the provisional report.

“In terms of the SIU Act, only the president may communicate to third parties the contents of reports that the SIU submit to him,” Ndala said.

It was revealed yesterday that Zuma had undertaken to give National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete a “comprehensive and final report” on the Nkandla controversy within 30 working days.

The lavish Nkandla project cost the taxpayer R246 million and dogged the president’s re-election campaign after Public Protector Thuli Madonsela found that he had derived “undue benefit” from it.
