M&G responds to Protector

2013-11-29 14:54

We're joined in studio by Mail & Guardian editor-in-chief Chris Roper to discuss why the M&G chose to release key points on the Nkandla upgrades.WATCH

Pretoria - Public Protector Thuli Madonsela on Wednesday said the ANC’s claim that her office leaked the report into the Nkandla upgrade was incorrect.

Madonsela was responding to the ANC’s media briefing on Tuesday, at which party secretary general Gwede Mantashe and deputy secretary general Jesse Duarte stated that the public protector’s office had leaked the provisional report into the Nkandla upgrade to the Mail & Guardian.

“Mantashe said I said that I leaked the provisional Nkandla report. The truth is my statement that he relied on doesn't say that,” Madonsela said at a briefing in Pretoria.

She said Mantashe’s claim that she had shared her report with affected parties was untrue and she had only shown the report to the five minister in the security cluster.

Madonsela also laid out her office’s roadmap for the release of the report.
