DA wants answers on Nkandla

2012-10-25 11:19

Johannesburg - The Democratic Alliance has asked President Jacob Zuma to explain the over R200m upgrade to his private Nkandla residence in KwaZulu-Natal, party leader Helen Zille said on Thursday.

"The president must also explain what personal accountability he takes for the scandal, and who else in his government will be held accountable for this failure of judgement," she said in a statement.

The DA had written to Zuma, and to the ministers of public works, defence, police and public service and administration.

It had offered them "a formal opportunity to offer a full and thorough explanation of how this unacceptable expenditure came to be approved, and on what basis".

Zille said government's footing such a large bill on Zuma's private residence could be illegal.

"The DA believes that spending R250m on upgrades to the president’s private home is not only morally wrong and unjustifiable given our country’s social needs, but that it is also possibly illegal.

"It is, we believe, in violation of the provisions of the Ministerial Handbook and the Executive Ethics Code."

Based on the response the DA received, it would consider whether to take legal action.
Zille said the president and his government had been dodging questions on Nkandla.

"The president’s office has referred queries to the department of public works, as the department that contracted the work in Nkandla.

"But the Minister of Public Works, Thulas Nxesi, has said that it was the departments of state security and defence that requested and planned the upgrades.

"The government has even tried to justify the expenditure for vague security reasons, hiding behind provisions in the National Key Points Act."

On Wednesday, Parliament blocked a question submitted by DA Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko on Nkandla.

Reports have estimated the cost of the work to be between R203m and R238m. Zuma would reportedly pay only 5% of the bill - around R10m.

    I wish Zuma could just scrap the Nkandla project FFS, does it not matter to him that he's always in the news for all the wrong reasons?

      BigChiefPlumbPudding - 2012-10-25 11:32

      I share your sentiment. Does he really care? I thought a President would put his country and his people first.

      luther.kingsley.5 - 2012-10-25 11:52

      A corrupt and criminal government voted into power by the masses, its obvious the majority if citizens(ANC) love and support this behaviour. These thugs will never be removed from government while the majority voters have poor integrity and morals and are unable to distinguish between good and bad leaders.

      I think most of South Africa wants answers to this rampant spending spree - as if it is Mr Zuma's own money. Actually, just by the way Mr President - it is ours and we would like a say in how you spend it - there are too many people who would just love a roof over their heads, never mind a lavish spectacle such as this one.

  • pierre.coetzee.7 - 2012-10-25 11:33

  • kyle.r.lottering - 2012-10-25 11:37

    let me guess... There will be no answer and no one accountable. The ANC like to think they don't have to answer to anyone, especially zuma, and sadly in this country its mostly true.

  • mbuti.manopole.3 - 2012-10-25 11:38

    NO wonder why the KZN tops the list of the most corrupt provinces in S.A , Zuma's only respond is that whatever spent on his private property is the same as what's been spent @ Qunu in th E.C as if he deserves it , He must not compare himself with Mandela, mxm he is a a pig banker that horgs money !!

      wesley.bischoff - 2012-10-25 11:58

      Mandela's security upgrades in Qunu cost max R30 million, a far cry from the R250 millions being spent by Zumba. This moron just cares about himself.

      roger.kaputnick.90 - 2012-10-25 18:00

      Look at it this way...since it's our tax money being spent here, don't we as citizens have a large share in his house. It should be open to the public! He paid 10%, he gets only 10% of it, the rest is public property.

  • JAbu.R15 - 2012-10-25 11:39

    Dont know what is going on, DA points out Zumas f ups ne, and then Zuma just ignores everything then after that nothing is done about it.! Y can the whole nkandla thing be scrapped? y cant zuma give DA the tapes? y?y?y? and in all these no answers from zuma! eish I wish he be out vouted in mangaung, or even better; Lekota's wish come through

  • thefat.canarie - 2012-10-25 11:46

People of Nkandla are actually South African and they deserve it. Zuma can actually tell the MPs what to do coz he has done something for his people

He is president because of a larger political agenda, NOT because he is a good prez. He is NOT allowed to use our hard earned money to upgrade his private home. That nothing but stealing and he should go to court for that.

    The ANC & cronies are only interested in self enrichment and not worried about the masses whether they starve or are killed. The president should be ashamed, talking about on one hand to tighten belts but him and cronies steal the taxpayers monies. He is a very weak leader who has no skills to lead anything

  • man.zanilla.73 - 2012-10-25 11:56

    I THINK OPPOSITION PARTIES SHOULD BE DISBANDED. ALL THE VOICES SPEAKING OUT AGAINST ANC WRONGS SHOULD BE SILENCED. WE SHOULD BITE THE BULLET TO GET OVER WITH THIS. MAYBE WE CAN START REBUILDING THE COUNTRY AFTER THAT. IT WOULD BE INTERESTING TO SEE HOW LONG IT WILL TAKE THEM TO F THINGS UP SO BAD THAT WE CAN CALL THE COUNTRY DEAD. WE SHOULD FIRST DEFINE WHAT DEAD IS OTHERWISE WE END UP IN A SITUATION SUCH AS ZIMBABWE; DEAD AND STINKING FOR YEARS BUT SEEN AS ALIVE, SUCCESSFUL AND FIGHTING THE IMPERIAL COLONIZERS. Let zuma build his fort. Many off the people who the money was promised originally like their king to lord it over them. Rich flashy king of kappoki-land with the poor peasants. Its the african way.

    a Crying shame i tell you. Worse is that all his little poor followers who have no water, no electricity, no food, no education, no clothes, no Tracy Chapman will keep on voting for this corrupt, evil leader who's only interest in life is to uplift himself and his family and friends. Truth is it's very easy to care about the poor from the comfort of your R250 MIL palace in Nkandla. He would choose too have a solid gold toilet instead of feeding a hungry black baby? and yet they sing his praise? He has made a total mockery, this self proclamed king, taking as many wifes as he chooses. Which 1st world presidency would take him serious? I bet they laugh at him behind his back. Funny thing is he will be voted out and wont care as he would have raped the cash koffers to such an extent he would not have to work another day in his live. He will then hand over to the next ANC cronie who will do the same,and all along the poor will get poorer, the white man's tax money will run out as they would not be able to feed themselves, let alone the rest of the nation. But hey, lets to the Zuma jive and put smiles on our faces.....

  • pmalungana - 2012-10-25 12:23

    The Nkandlagate scandal may be a collective decision of the ANC. So the doctrine of common purpose should be applicable if the law has to be enforced to the letter. The governmnet has been hiding behind collective decision making process in taking decisions, accordingly we should establish special courts if these decision are found to be iilegal as the entire decision making body should be held accountable.The Nkandla gate scandal if left unattended makes corruption legal acceptable in our society, and the society should as a norm endorse corruption has an approved way of doing business. If the government accept that the it has erred in spending such huge sum of money on the presidency it will go a long way in improving transparency in government and the president should cancel the development accordingly.

      oliphant.mzolisi - 2012-10-25 21:03

      Pmalungana if u dont know something its noble to ask that will not make u stupid,the polices of the ANC ar open for public its no secrete therefore yur point is invalid if u ar saying curruption and misuse of taxpayers money its the collective decission of the ANC infact it condems it unapologetic,ANC impliments polices that ar taken by the collective which polices ar know by the public so leave the ANC alone and deal with Zuma as an individual,not at any stage did the ANC gave Zuma an instrution to misuse the states money his doing it with his parpets in the goverment.

      parys.fotograaf - 2012-10-25 12:56

      No, you are wrong. The biggest problem is that nations are forced together against their will in a unity state. Racism and crime is the expression of this, with the government leading the way. It will lead to civil war unless we stop it and do what is right. Disband the RSA into a multi party state and live as neighbours along international law.

  • winifred.watson.9 - 2012-10-25 12:28

    The truth, Zuma does not care what you or me think. He is going to get his Nkandla whether we like it or not. When he is finished with Nkandla watch, his private Jet will arrive. Zuma is so busy enriching himself and his ministers and officials are taking us to the cleaners. He does'nt care a fig what happens to this country, he is trying to stay out of jail and he has let those who serve him raid the cookie jar thereby they are now the mafia. Next, we have to ask ourselves, how are we going to rid ourselves of the current vermin. Zuma has already greased Motlanthe's palm and I dont believe this guy is any better than zuma, he can see clearly what is taking place in the current ANC remember he has it 1st hand and yet he sits back and says nothing. Its only the people who can prevent zuma's 2nd term and rid us of the vermin but too many palms have already been greased and promises to the uneducated are once again on the cards, so he will get his vote it is just going to cost us a lot more. If he feels he needs to speak up he will just get motor mouth Mac to do his dirty job.

    First it ws a private jet, now he wants to upgrade his private house wth such a mammoth or lumsum amount of tax payers(250m). I reckon this are the juicy fruits of democracy where the capitalists exploit the poor by building such expensive houses n cars. If my memory serves me well most of the people are homeles n many learners in SA are still learning under trees or in unpleasant learning evironments while this government officials are indulging in conspicuous consumption of good life n accumulation of materialistic things. The wealth of this country is not mutualized in a tantamount manner, n SA is the only country in Southern Africa which has not been in hyperinflation bt we are very close n near to rich such point of economic collapse as we have crossed the rubicon....

  • magomarele - 2012-10-25 12:33

  • pmalungana - 2012-10-25 12:34

    It is not too late for the government to undo the damage which Nkandlagate scandal has caused.The entire image of the ANC will be tarnished if the presidency says they do not know what the left arm is doing.The right thing to do is to be transparent on the project and the country can move on . We have been proven to be a forgiving nation in the world. We have forgiven even the things which are not forgiveable, like the atrocities committed during apartheid.Why prolong the debate on Nkandla instead of coming clean. Now the country know what is in the print media, and the government's transperancy on the issue may restore the image and the office offfice of the presidency.It is mind bogling that the president has not provided a comprehensive answer on such a sentive issue to date.

      gary.dawson.7140 - 2012-10-25 12:59

      Hasani, i believe it is too late. The simple fact that it got as far out of hand as it has proves that. Are we all going to sit idly by and everytime the Zuma's of this country take a chance to steal we point it out and stopit from happening? Should we not have a leader who's aim is to change our country to that of a 1st world, do we not deserve a leader who cares about the future of the children of this country? Why should South Africa carry on forgiving the criminals who's only aim is to steal from the mouth's of the poor? Zuma allready has use of the presidential home in Tswane and Capetown, why shouls he have an housing allowance of R230Mil as a goverment employee when a teacher has an R600-00 housing allowance? Does it give the average black man so much pleasure to have a token puppet in goverment who is living the high life at the cost of his own children? We cannot change any of what happened in the past, Black people blame Apartheid, Afrikaners blame the English for the Anglo Boer War and Zulu's blame Xhosa's etc. etc. Somewhere in the middle of all this there are people from every race and language in this country who have similar moral values and cry and laugh about the same things in life. My wish is that someone would stand up and form a political party for like minded people.

    Having read some of yur comments it is clear that some of u just made comments without reading the main issue,some of u ar mentioning the names of our great leaders whom did not use their powers to enrich themselves but to serve the people of this country,the money they used to upgrade their houses was far less than 238m unlike Zuma who is there 4 personal material gain,he has served in the goverment since 1994 as a MEC we was getting a fatchech why did he not use that money to upgrade his house,we can not allow him to built a first class hotel out of taxpayers money,his life is not in any danger 2 have a house of such high security,he is not inportant 4 his house to have high security,please do not comment if u do not understand the juice of the matter ,i also want to put to u unapologetic that it is not the ANC as the organisation that is involve in all these scandals but individuals leave the ANC out and deal with the culpritz as the member as the ruling party that decission to upgrade the house of Zuma was never taken by the ANC collective it is him and his boys inside the goverment that have abused powers given to them in the goverment leave ANC out,The DA must take the legal action we all need answers and we will support the move as it will not b taking the movement to court but an individual.

      Oliphant in general you are correct and I agree with you however one point in your argument doesn’t add up. You say we should not blame the ANC as it is individuals. Surely then if these individuals are members of the ANC then they should be kicked out. Failure to do so will indicate that the ANC support them. There is only one way, vote them out. It does not matter who you vote for as long it is not for the cANCer. They are hell bent on destroying our country.

But hey, if that is fine with you go ahead, but stop blaming Apartheid or whites for it isn't that or them who are sending the black child hungry to bed tonight. Or everynight for that matter. Are you sharing your food tonight?.

      mc.segal.5 - 2012-10-25 18:19

      Oliphant ....The ANC represent Zuma For any of them to remain silent is a crime as silence is agreement.

      oliphant.mzolisi - 2012-10-25 19:10

      Segal we ar working on that,we will remove Zuma in december in mangaung as ANC president and also as the president of the country i still maintain that leave the ANC out and deal with Zuma,the ANC always distance its self from any corrupt movement made by its member/s.

    It might have been understandable if the expenditure was directed towards a state house whereby it would be occupied by subsequent state officials but as it stands we are throwing money towards a private residence which will becomes the Zuma legacy. How stupid is the man taking us for?? I suggest that all construction work stops till this issue has been sorted out.

  • anthony.swart - 2012-10-25 16:05

    Mr Zuma you are not a man of integrity or compassion, you allow the squandering of tax payers money on frivolous partying and personal home upgrades. Your presidency will forever be remembered as South Africa's darkest hour. Show some statesmanship and leadership, show us your more than a playboy using the treasury as your personal wallet. Do the job the masses voted you in to do that's all we ask of you failing which step down and scurry off to your never never land in Nkandla before the country burns in despair.

  • filistyn.vandoer - 2012-10-25 16:12

    Zuma is building his Nkandla like the afrikaners are building their Orania. The only differance is Zuma is doing it with the taxpayers money and the afrikaners with their own money. Maybe the DA should also get their own Nkandla otherwise they will starve with the rest of the ANC in Azania.

      mc.segal.5 - 2012-10-25 18:22

      Vote for The independant Nkandla. The western cape Move the industry there and become an economic powerhouse.

  • makavelithedonkilluminati.shakur - 2012-10-25 16:31

    I had saying this bcoz white people love hearing black people saying this. But DA is right on this one I totally agree with DA,but this does not guarantee any votes from us clever blacks.

  • thabo.shaku - 2012-10-25 22:26
