Nhleko hasn’t started on Nkandla yet

Johannesburg - Police Minister Nathi Nhleko has not yet started determining whether President Jacob Zuma should pay back part of the money spent upgrading his Nkandla homestead, Beeld reported on Wednesday.

He reportedly told the publication on Tuesday that he would not consider the Nkandla matter before the parliamentary processes had been completed.

"The report of the president is currently in the hands of Parliament and it must still be handled in Parliament," he was quoted as saying.

"Only after Parliament completes the process and accepts a resolution over the report, will I investigate the Nkandla matter in terms of the police portfolio."

Public Protector Thuli Madonsela in her report on the R246m spent on security upgrades at Zuma's Nkandla, KwaZulu-Natal, homestead, indicated the president needed to repay all non-security related expenses at Nkandla.

In his reply to her report, Zuma indicated Nhleko needed to determine if he should pay back any of the money.

Parliament has begun setting up an ad hoc committee to consider Zuma's response to the Nkandla controversy.

I'm still trying to digest the fact that our President has been bust with his hands in the till, and is still President. Any other country in the world and he would have removed quickly. But NO, not in SA...Here is cabinet is covering it all up and still support him. African National Communist Corruption Movement are one big fat joke, a total let down to a promise ''a better life for all'' Remove Zuma and resign the ANC They haven't a clue how to run a country!!!!!!!

This "Nkandla" scandal is a good rugby match. The ball gets passed so fast one to another it is scary. Why don't the powers to be call a simply meeting with major roll players and go thru all reports point by point and it is a simply answer YES or NO. The person that authorized all expenses must have valid reason. Why is the ruling party keep on hiding/running away. Please people cut all the bull and get to the point. Is it that difficult??? Really

No rush mate, let's keep everyone waiting. We have all the time in the world not. The longer these questions are left unanswered the more the nation will become wise to the fact that they voted for the wrong party and that the promises made were not designed to be kept. Zuma should pay what he owes and then retire to his beloved Nkandla and give the country another chance at putting the pieces back together. A nation who does not believe in their government, soon become an extremely unhappy one.
