SANDF's Nkandla report to be released 'soon'
The DA says findings of a board of inquiry set up by the SANDF could be revealed soon.
CAPE TOWN - The Democratic Alliance (DA) says the findings of a board of inquiry set up by the South African Defence Force (SANDF) to look into its spending on the Nkandla project may be revealed in the next month or two.
In a recent Parliamentary reply, Defence Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula said the defence force is currently looking into the matter.
DA Parliamentarian David Maynier says the board may be able to reveal how much was spent on a military clinic and other facilities for defence staff at President Jacob Zuma's private residence.
"It will traverse issues surrounding the construction of the helipad and will also focus heavily on the building of the R11 million military clinic."

The party said Zuma must listen to other parties and religious leaders who have demanded that he reveal the truth behind his involvement in the project.
Public Protector Thuli Madonsela released her Nkandla report in March which found President Jacob Zuma unduly benefitted from the multi-million rand upgrades to his Nkandla home.
The document recommended the president account to Parliament and pay back part of the total sum.
Zuma has said in public that he didn't ask for the upgrades and would not pay back any of the money to the state.
He has pledged to deliver a full response on the matter after receiving the Special Investigating Unit's report after next month's elections.
National Assembly speaker Max Sisulu has authorised the establishment of an ad-hoc committee to consider Zuma's response to the report.
