The making of “Prestige Project A”, the name given to the upgrade of President Jacob Zuma’s estate at Nkandla, was a massive fail. That can be the only finding after reading a 40-odd page interministerial task team report on Nkandla, released by government today. The presidential architect, Minenhle Makhanya, project managed the entire shebang though he had no security clearance. He appointed all the companies, none of which were on the department of public works’ approved list. He promised to provide their credentials to Public Works, but never did, the report finds.
