Nkandla - IFP Continues to Urge for Urgent Action to Be Taken

01 April 2014

 

With only one day remaining for President Zuma to respond to the Public Protector's report, the IFP has again pledged its support for the Public Protector, her Report and its findings.

 

An Extended National Council of the IFP, which met at Pinetown at the weekend, unanimously adopted the following resolution

 

REPORT OF THE PUBLIC PROTECTOR ON NKANDLA

 

Noting  

The Public Protector's 443-page report on Nkandla - which is a great roadmap showing the extent to which government officials, those around the President, and the President himself have tried to hide their misdeeds; and

 

That the Report vindicates all those who were fired for questioning the amounts spent, as the initial costing of R27 million rose to R250 million. It also vindicates the many media publications on these so-called "security upgrades".

 

The Extended National Council resolved

  1. To unequivocally pledge support for the Public Protector's Report and its findings;

  2. To highlight the fact that while there may be clear grounds for impeachment, this is not likely to happen through the parliamentary process.

  3. To commend the Public Protector on the excellent work she is doing;

  4. To condemn the threats that have been made against the Public Protector;

  5. To continue the call for immediate action to be taken on the Report.
