Johannesburg - The ANC Youth League on Thursday called on Public Protector Thuli Madonsela to resign following her report into the upgrades at President Jacob Zuma’s Nkandla homestead.

Speaking at Luthuli House in Johannesburg, the league said Madonsela’s report was “a clear sign” she was an “opposition puppet”.

“Madonsela has been frequenting DA tea parties during her Nkandla investigation. She needs scrutiny,” reporters at the league's briefing quoted it as saying.

City Press reporter Sabelo Ndlangisa quoted the league as saying: “We want the incoming government to probe Madonsela's credibility. She must step down before 2016.”

The youth league’s view goes against that of its parent body which said that it did not intend to undermine the validity of the protector’s report.

“There is no such intention within the ANC,” party secretary general Gwede Mantashe said.  

The African National Congress was "relieved" that the report had "finally been released to the public".

But the timing of the release of the report remained a concern "in terms of the disruptive effect" it would have on all political parties in their campaigning ahead of general elections in May, said Mantashe.
