JOHANNESBURG - The KwaZulu-Natal Transport Department on Wednesday said plans to build two new roads through Nkandla were finalised in 2006.

The department denied claims that the roads are linked to President Jacob Zuma's rural homestead, which is the subject of investigations.

Government is accused of breaking the law following reports that officials from the Public Works Department spent over R200 million to upgrade Zuma's Nkandla residence.

Earlier, The Star newspaper reported the decision to build the roads may be linked to Nkandla.

Department spokesperson Kwanele Ncalane said, "The construction of merely two kilometres cannot be done overnight. We are saying this was planned a long time, even before Zuma was president."
