The R7,8 million that president Jacob Zuma has to pay up for Nkandla, is less than 5% of the total amount that was spent on Nkandla and is nothing other than a symbolic rap over the knuckles to satisfy the public, Dr. Corné Mulder, chief whip of the FF Plus, says.
Dr. Mulder says it is especially noticeable that the amount is far less than the R10 million that president Zuma himself was apparently prepared to pay as settlement.
“The R7,8 million is less than 5% of the costs of the total amount spent on the Nkandla project. This is unacceptable.
“The FF Plus is of the opinion that a quantity surveyor should do a thorough analyses of the project as the value of the existing security upgrade work could definitely not amount to close to R200 million and it is clear that millions of rand has disappeared through corruption.
“An expert must therefore conduct an investigation to realistically determine what the work was supposed to cost,” Dr. Mulder says.
