The IFP calls upon the Special Investigations
Unit and Auditor-General to investigate alleged irregularities
into the awarding of tenders and procurement of goods at
President Jacob Zuma's homestead in Nkandla.
IFP Spokesperson on Public Works, Mr Petros
Sithole, MP said, "The Minister of Public Works, Thulas Nxesi
has stated that there were irregularities in the appointment of
service providers and the procurement of goods and services at
President Zuma's home in Nkandla. A full investigation must be
launched into this matter as a matter of urgency as 'Nkandla
gate' is now becoming another Presidential embarrassment."
"The Minister's vague and superfluous
rendition of the report also failed to provide exact details
about the renovation of President Zuma's home. We therefore call
upon the Department of Public works to present parliament with a
detailed account of each and every single cent spent in this
waste of taxpayer's money. The issue of withholding this report
away from the public, shows that there are more secrets behind this
issue, which the minister is not willing to be seen by the public,"
