Sisulu to table Nkandla report - FF Plus

2014-03-31 22:05
(Sapa)
Johannesburg - National Assembly Speaker Max Sisulu has promised to table the public protector's Nkandla report in Parliament, the FF Plus said on Monday.

"This will clear the way for an urgent debate... about the Nkandla report and [Jacob] Zuma's reaction to it," FF Plus MP Pieter Groenewald said in a statement.

"The FF Plus will keep the Speaker to his undertaking and as soon as 14 days have passed, Zuma has to react and the FF Plus will insist on an urgent debate about it."

Groenewald said the debate would have to take place before the general elections as the matter was of "great public importance".

"The Speaker will have to make an exception and will even have to call a special session of the National Assembly," he said.

The DA wanted Zuma impeached over the R246m upgrades at his KwaZulu-Natal home.

Last Tuesday, Sisulu responded to DA MP Lindiwe Mazibuko's request for a motion for Zuma's impeachment.

In a letter, Sisulu told Mazibuko the matter would be tabled once Zuma had submitted the report to Parliament with his comments and a "report on any remedial steps taken or intended to be taken".

Public Protector Thuli Madonsela found Zuma and his family improperly benefited from security upgrades to his private home.

These included a cattle kraal, a swimming pool, and an amphitheatre.

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

Instead he blamed government officials.

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

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