The Democratic Alliance said it will
be going to court to force the so called Nkandlagate report to be made
DA Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe
Mazibuko said they tried twice to get a copy of the report.
Mazibuko said the report was
intended to shed light on the spending of more than R200 million of public
money on President Jacob Zuma’s private residence.
“We have decided that the only we
can do now is to approach the Western Cape high court to ask for an order that
will compel the Minister and the director general of the public works to make
the reports public.
I’m also asking the court to rule
that Minister Nxesi’s refusal to give the DA access to the report under PAIA was
invalid and that if the rule in his decision was invalid that they order him to
hand over the report within five days,” Mazibuko added.
