Nxesi eagerly awaits Nkandla report
Thulas Nxesi says his department is eager to see revelations in the Public Protector's report.
JOHANNESBURG - Public Works Minister Thulas Nxesi says his department is eagerly awaiting the Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's provisional report regarding President Jacob Zuma's Nkandla homestead.
Last year the Democratic Alliance (DA) asked Mandonsela to investigate allegations that the president's family was benefiting from the more than R200 million upgrade to his KwaZulu-Natal home.
Before a report could be released Nxesi decided to classify its details.
Madonsela says the report is nearly finished but has admitted she didn't know who to hand it to, as she usually submits her recommendations to Zuma himself.
Nxesi says Zuma has nothing to do with the report.
"I'm not sure if the president is involved in that. All I know is that she was investigating the security upgrade at the Presidential house, which is done by the department. I am not sure how the president is involved in it."
