Cabinet orders release of report on Zuma home
JOHANNESBURG (AP) — The South African Cabinet has ordered that an inter-ministerial task team report on the funding of controversial security upgrades to President Jacob Zuma’s private home be released to the public.
The report is the result of one of two probes launched in the wake of an outcry over allegations that the government had used about $21 million of taxpayers’ money to finance the security upgrades. A separate investigation has also been conducted by the country’s public protector.
The Cabinet said the Security Ministers Cluster - five Cabinet ministers who deal with security - and the Minister of Public Works will conduct a media briefing on the report next Tuesday.
