‘I wanted to shed more light on Nkandla’
Madonsela says MPs should ensure they exhaust all sources of information that may shed light on Nkandla.
CAPE TOWN - Public Protector Thuli Madonsela says she had expected Parliament to allow her to shed light on the issues contained in her Nkandla report.
In her report released last year, Madonsela found President Jacob Zuma benefited unduly from the non-security features, which formed part of the R246 million project to upgrade his private homestead in Nkandla.
But the police minister responded with his own findings that Zuma doesn't have to repay a cent.
Madonsela says MPs should ensure they exhaust all sources of information that may shed light on the issue they're deciding on.
She says she has information she wants to share with Parliament regarding the president's incorrect impression of what her remedial action required.
The public protector says Zuma was required to determine how much he was going to pay, assisted by the Treasury and South African Police Service.
She adds no minister was asked to make a determination or to advise the president.
Last night, opposition MPs tried to convince the ANC to allow Madonsela and several other people to appear before a parliamentary ad-hoc committee, but the ruling party used its majority muscle to squash their proposals.
