Government spokesperson Jimmy Manyi has been told not to comment on a report by the Public Protector.

Manyi told a news conference in Johannesburg yesterday that all questions about the damning report will now be answered by newly-appointed Presidential spokesperson Mac Maharaj.

The report, which was released nearly two weeks ago, said President Jacob Zuma must take remedial action against National Police Commissioner Bheki Cele and Public Works Minister Gwen Mahlangu-Nkabinde.

They were found guilty of maladministration in their handling of lease agreements for SA Police Service properties in Pretoria and Durban.

Neither the Minster nor Cele has responded to the report at this stage.
