Zuma awaits Shiceka’s explanation

President Jacob Zuma says in a statement he has noted media reports on allegations about the alleged misuse of public funds by Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister Sicelo Shiceka.

The President views the matter in a serious light and awaits a response to the allegations from Shiceka.

The Presidency does, however, stress that the Minister remains innocent of the allegations unless proven otherwise.

Apart from the alleged misuse of taxpayers’ money for luxury accommodation and overseas trips, reports yesterday also linked Shiceka to the building of a new house in his home village of Ingquza Hill.

It lies in the poorest district of the Eastern Cape where residents last week protested against the lack of service delivery.

Another report alleged that Shiceka has a string of current and former lovers. He has been on sick leave since February.
