Police treating Nkandla like any other case
The dockets have been consolidated and handed over to detectives at head office.
JOHANNESBURG - Police say the criminal charges laid against President Jacob Zuma over his Nkandla home are being treated like "any other matter".
Two political parties laid complaints in two separate provinces after Public Protector Thuli Madonsela released her damning report into upgrades at Zuma's KwaZulu-Natal home.
Madonsela found that the president benefitted from upgrades which were not security related, violated an ethics code and should pay back some of the money spent on his residence. Picture: City Press.

He has also been ordered to account to Parliament and discipline his ministers.
The police's Solomon Makgale said the dockets had been consolidated and handed over to detectives at head office.
"It will be looked into like any other complaint we receive."
Opposition parties continue to put pressure on Zuma to break his silence and explain how he planned to deal with Madonsela's findings.
Yesterday, Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa gave a strong hint that a legal challenge could be on the cards, saying the report contains inaccuracies.

Meanwhile, National Assembly speaker Max Sisulu is considering a request for an ad-hoc committee to consider the Public Protector's report, according to Democratic Alliance (DA) Parliamentary leader Lindiwe Mazibuko.
She said she received a letter from the speaker saying Parliament was waiting for Zuma to table his comments along with a report on any action he intended on taking.
The DA politician wrote to Sisulu five days ago, informing him of her party's intention to invoke Section 89 of the Constitution in a bid to have Zuma removed from office.
