It has been more than three-weeks since the Public Protector’s damning report into the rental of properties in Pretoria and Durban for the SA Police Services.
Neither the National Police Commissioner Bheki Cele, nor Public Works Minister Gwen Shabangu-Nkabinde, who were both named in the report, have commented.
Political analyst Harald Pakendorf says President Jacob Zuma still has 44-days in which to react and make a decision.
He says the way in which Zuma handles the matter will be a defining moment in the fight against corruption, and the credibility of the government.
