Discussing Project X, the ANC’s programme of action after Nelson Mandela’s death, was like “peeling an onion and it kept bringing tears to your eyes”, ANC deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa has said.
South Africa has lost a colossus who epitomised humility, equality, justice peace and hope for millions of South Africans, the ANC has said, eulogising the late former president Nelson Mandela who passed away just before 9pm yesterday.
Cabinet has decided to declassify and publish a government task team report, which cleared President Jacob Zuma of any involvement in the R208 million upgrades to his Nkandla home, Education Minister Angie Motshekga has said.
The ANC has welcomed Public Protector Thuli Madonsela’s intention to meet with the party to set the record straight regarding “incorrect statements” made by the party’s secretary-general, Gwede Mantashe, and his deputy, Jessie Duarte.
Instead of covering their number plates with tablecloths to boycott the introduction of e-tolling, some Gauteng motorists have opted to use the Gautrain to travel between Pretoria and Joburg.
The public should not believe the publication of any “purported” provisional reports into the R208 million security upgrades in President Zuma’s Nkandla home because a number of different versions have been written by her office, Public Protector Thuli Madonsela has told City Press.
Public Protector Thuli Madonsela met with ministers in the security cluster this afternoon after her damning provisional report into the upgrades to President Jacob Zuma’s Nkandla home had leaked.
Items bearing Teazers insignia were popular among bidders when assets belonging to slain Teazers boss Lolly Jackson went under the hammer in Pretoria today.
Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa has accused the media of “playing dumb” by deliberately misinforming the public when reporting about the state’s spending on the security of President Jacob Zuma’s Nkandla residence.
Ministers in the security cluster seem to have buried the hatchet with Public Protector Thuli Madonsela after they hauled her to court for refusing to extend the time they had to read her provisional findings into the spending on the president’s Nkandla home.
Public Protector Thuli Madonsela doesn’t fear losing her job and has never contemplated quitting as a result of the spat between her and ministers in the security cluster, which ended up in the courts.
Security cluster ministers used the state attorney’s office to dissuade Public Protector Thuli Madonsela from investigating the R206 million spent on President Jacob Zuma’s private residence in Nkandla.
