Madonsela concerned by non-implementation of her findings
The public protector said she is concerned that this might set a precedent.
PRETORIA - Public Protector Thuli Madonsela says her office is worried by the non-implementation of remedial action she recommends in her findings.
While not referring specifically to the Nkandla report, Madonsela said she is concerned that this might set a precedent.
She was speaking at a roundtable discussion on the role of the ombudsman with her Swedish counterpart, Chief Parliamentary Ombudsman Elisabet Fura in Pretoria yesterday.
"The question of non-implementation of remedial action is a bit of a problem but it has just been made a crisis by this one case. You may accept a principle on one case but it becomes a precedent."
Earlier this year, Madonsela found that President Jacob Zuma benefitted unduly from the R246 million upgrades at his Nkandla home in KwaZulu-Natal and recommended that he pay back a portion of the money.
The upgrades included an amphitheatre, a chicken run and a swimming pool.
