Prosecutor sought for DA’s Nkandla caseComment on this story
Johannebsurg - Police were seeking a prosecutor for the Nkandla case, the Democratic Alliance said on Thursday.
“As a sign of confidence in our case, the police are seeking the appointment of a prosecutor to the matter, who may even expand the charges against (President) Jacob Zuma beyond those laid by the DA,” spokesman Mmusi Maimane said in a statement.
Maimane said he and DA Parliamentary candidate, Glynnis Breytenbach, met police officers assigned to the Nkandla case on Thursday.
Last week, Maimane opened a corruption case against Zuma at Nkandla police station near the president's private homestead in KwaZulu-Natal.
The laying of charges followed the release of Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's final report on the upgrades to Zuma's homestead.
In her report, Madonsela found Zuma “unduly benefited from the enormous capital investment” in the Nkandla upgrades, totalling R246 million.
