Cape Town - The ANC on Saturday tried to buy time when it decided to let Parliament deal with the public protector’s report into the use of taxpayers’ money at President Jacob Zuma’s Nkandla homestead.

ANC insiders told City Press that the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) did not spend much time discussing the report at this weekend’s meeting.

Instead, the ANC’s highest decision making body was informed that Zuma will respond directly to National ­Assembly Speaker Max Sisulu.

It was then decided that the ANC should not take a position until Parliament has processed the report.

ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe will give a post-NEC briefing on the matter on Monday.

This comes as the ANC and the SA Democratic Teachers Union (Sadtu) in KwaZulu-Natal spearhead the latest drive to keep Zuma in power – because, the party says, South ­Africans don’t need “angels” at the helm.
