Police lease report won't be discussed at lekgotla

2011-07-26 13:02
Pretoria - The public protector's report into two controversial building leases for the police is not up for discussion at Cabinet's lekgotla, Minister in the Presidency Collins Chabane said in Pretoria on Tuesday.

The meeting would focus on job creation and service delivery, Chabane told reporters.

He said, without elaborating, that the South African economy faced "external threats".

The SA Local Government Association would also be involved in the lekgotla.

Chabane said Walmart's buyout of local retailer Massmart was not on the agenda, but did not rule out that it would be discussed.

"If it comes up, it will come up within the context of us analysing the challenges we face to try and make sure we protect South African industry."

The three-day meeting ends on Thursday.
