Zuma to wait for SIU Nkandla report

2014-04-02 16:09
Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma undertook on Wednesday to give Parliament a "further report" on "decisive executive interventions" on his private Nkandla home.

He would do so after receiving a report from the Special Investigating Unit (SIU)he had directed to probe security upgrades at Nkandla, the presidency said in a statement.

"President Jacob Zuma has today, 2 April 2014, submitted a response to the Speaker of the National Assembly, Mr Max Sisulu, in relation to the report of the public protector on the security upgrades at his Nkandla residence," the presidency said.

It noted that three state agencies - the public protector, the Justice, Crime Prevention and Security Cluster of Cabinet and the SIU - had all "inquired into the same subject matter".

"The president has decided that he will give a full and proper consideration to all the matters before him and, upon receipt of the SIU report, will provide Parliament with a further report on the decisive executive interventions that he would consider to be appropriate," the presidency said.

"The president remains concerned about the allegations of maladministration and impropriety around procurement in the Nkandla project, in particular the allegations of cost inflation."
