Pretoria - The Nkandla report proves President Jacob Zuma did not use government money to erect any buildings in his KwaZulu-Natal homestead, the ANC said on Sunday.

“This report vindicates the President and our belief in the innocence of the President in this regard, on what he consistently said were lies and that he personally built his residence and that the government only built security features that are prescribed in relevant security prescripts,” spokesman Jackson Mthembu said in a statement.

The party welcomed the decision to probe irregularities in the awarding of tenders to service providers and consultants who worked on security upgrades at Nkandla. - Sapa
