Cape Town – The release of Police Minister Nkosinathi Nhleko' s Nkandla report, which was due to happen on Wednesday evening, was postponed for 24 hours.

Nhleko was supposed to make the announcement on whether President Jacob Zuma should pay a portion of the money spent on security upgrades at his Nkandla's homestead at the media centre in Parliament.

According to eNCA the press conference was postponed to Thursday at 19:00.

Nearly a year ago, Public Protector Thuli Madonsela published her report on the Nkandla project, saying Zuma and his family had benefited personally from the R246m spent on improving the private home, and that he had to pay back “a reasonable” portion of the millions.

A year later, the president still has not accepted any responsibility for the scandal or paid a cent. Instead, Zuma ordered Nhleko to decide if the president can be held accountable for what he termed security improvements at the Nkandla estate.

On the recommendation of the parliamentary ad hoc-committee on Nkandla in December, Mbete wrote to Nhleko to order him to send a team of security experts to Nkandla to determine if Zuma’s homes at Nkandla are safe or not.
