The sound you are hearing are the guns being loaded in the state security ministries, lining up another faceoff with Public Protector Thuli Madonsela over her report on the R206-million upgrade of President Jacob Zuma’s Nkandla estate. The dropping of the court bid to interdict Madonsela from releasing her provisional report to the interested parties is by no means a truce. The court action resulted in a trade of rapid-fire and accusations of lying that may have irreparably damaged the relationship between the state and the Public Protector. The scene is now set for a massive showdown over the contents of the report. By RANJENI MUNUSAMY.
Sound familiar? Of course it does – it is exactly the same pattern we have witnessed in the Spy Tapes saga, the Zimbabwe election report and the Arms Deal Commission to conceal information from the public.
The current fight, therefore, suits rather conveniently the security cluster ministers and, inter alia, President Zuma. This fight created a cloud of dust that will soon possibly become a big sandstorm – one that exists for one reason and one reason only: to keep the truth of Nkandla hidden from the citizens of South Africa.
