Our walk to freedom is no more as we are moving backwards:
The woman who brought to light the corruption and greed of our illustrious and recently re elected african national congress president jacob zuma is being sued by the anc. If this does not show you the intent for our supposedly free nation that stifles any opposition then nothing will.
Johannesburg – Government announced on Thursday that it will take Public Protector Thuli Madonsela to court over her report on the controversial upgrades at President Jacob Zuma’s Nkandla homestead.
Ministers in the security cluster say some of the findings trespass the separation of powers doctrine, says government spokesperson Phumla Williams.
They also said that some of the findings were irrational and contradictory, Eyewitness News reported.
The state’s legal team is already compiling court papers and government expects them to be filed at the high court within the next week.
Williams told EWN the decision was not taken lightly.
Madonsela announced in March that she found that Zuma unduly benefitted from the R246m upgrades.
An ad-hoc Parliamentary committee that was set up to consider the report was put on hold until after the elections.
