Cape Town - President Jacob Zuma will this week face the ANC national executive committee for the first time since the release of public protector Thuli Madonsela’s report into the R215m security upgrade report on Nkandla.

According to the Sunday Independent Zuma is not likely to be censured by the party, which is expected to give more weight to the inter-ministerial task team report than to that issued by Madonsela.

The newspaper reported that several ANC leaders have said it would be difficult to censure Zuma over Nkandla as the ministerial task team found him not guilty of any wrongdoing.

An ANC leader is reported to have said that the report by security cluster ministers is equally legitimate as that of Madonsela’s and that they will not allow theirs to be undermined., while an NEC member told the newspaper that he did not foresee any type of rebellion on the part of NEC members.

Zuma has meanwhile received widespread support from ANC structures following the release of Madonsela’s report. Among those who have come out strongly in support of him are the ANC Youth League and the ANC Women’s League.

Public Protector Thuli Madonsela this week found that Zuma and his family had improperly benefited from R215m security upgrades to his Nkandla home. Outstanding work on the property was around R36m.
