A critical service delivery program was shelved and money diverted to upgrade President Jacob Zuma’s homestead at Nkandla, Public Protector Madonsela found.
The Protector’s report, released on Wednesday (19/03/2014), was titled ‘Secure in Comfort’.
“Funds were reallocated from the inner city regeneration project and the dolomite risk management programme of the department of public works,” Mandonsela said in her voluminous report.
“Due to lack of proper demand management and planning, service delivery programs of the department of public works were negatively affected.”
Madonsela said the conduct of the department of public works was in violation of Section 237 of the Constitution and the Batho Pele White Paper. – Sapa
