Democratic Alliance Parliamentary Leader will today submit an application, in terms of the Promotion Access to Information Act, to gain access to the now secrete Nkandlagate report.

Lindiwe said she will announce that a formal request has been made to the Chairperson of the portfolio committee on public works, Miss Manana Mabuza, by DA Shadow Minister of public works, Anchen Dreyer, for the report to tabled and discussed in the committee.

Spokesperson Siviwe Gwarube said it is a slap in the face of accountability and transparency for the report, which makes a number of unsubstantiated assertions, to remain secret.

Gwarube adds his casts yet another shadow over this shameful saga and makes it clear that the Minister of Public Works, Thulas Nxesi, is engaged in a concerted campaign to protect President Zuma from accountability at all costs.

Furthermore Gwarube adds that President Zuma must do the right thing and intervene to ensure that his government tables the report in Parliament for proper scrutiny and debate.

Gwarube adds that if the President fails to do so, having gained access to the document through a PAIA application, Lindiwe Mazibuko will table the report herself as she is empowered to do as a member of the National Assembly.
