Give Nkandla reports time - ANC

2014-03-31 14:57
(Sapa)
Johannesburg - The ANC's national executive committee (NEC) is satisfied with the work being done on two reports on Nkandla, the party said on Monday.

"The NEC... expressed its satisfaction with the responses and work undertaken by our officials and the NWC on this matter," ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe told reporters in Johannesburg.

"It further noted that there are processes that need to be given a chance, like the pending report of the president expected in due course and progress on the work of the Special [Investigating] Unit."

In her report on the security upgrades done as President Jacob Zuma's private Nkandla homestead in KwaZulu-Natal titled "Secure in Comfort", Public Protector Thuli Madonsela found that Zuma had unduly benefited from the improvements.

These included a cattle kraal and swimming pool, built with state money.

She also stated in the report that he should refund a portion of the R246m cost.

On Monday, it was reported that Zuma told a crowd in Gugulethu in Cape Town he would not repay the money because he did not ask for the upgrades.

He placed the blame on government officials.

"They did this without telling me," he told ANN7.

"So why should I pay for something I did not ask for."
