Comparisons between the
three Nkandla reports
Nkandla
ministerial task
team
Public Protector
Special
Investigating Unit*
*Report expected to be completed this week
NKANDLA NKANDLA
Exonerates President
Jacob Zuma from
wrongdoing and blames
officials
Actual security
installation cost R71
million and R135 million
was spent on operation-
al needs and basic
facilities. Consultants
charged 24%, which
was too much
Does not focus on the
architect Minenhle
Makhanya
Points fingers at former
public works minister
Geoff Doidge and his
deputy Hendrietta
Bogopane-Zulu
Estimated state costs
at R206.4 million (by
December 2012)
Calls it a ‘fire pool’
Zuma derived substantial
benefit from the
non-security features of
the upgrades
Zuma failed in his duties
by not questioning
expenditure and must
repay costs for non-
security upgrades
Zuma was in close
consultation with
Makhanya on the security
and other upgrades, and
Makhanya overcharged
Conduct by former public
works minister Geoff
Doidge and his deputy
Hendrietta Bogopane-Zu-
lu was not improper and
doesn’t amount to
maladministration
Estimated state costs at
R246 million
Calls it a ‘swimming
pool’
Doesn’t focus on
pointing fingers at
Zuma
Notes overcharging by
some of the consul-
tants, who were
supposed to charge
18.5% but charged 25%
of contract value
Goes after Makhanya to
repay R155 million
Suggests there might
have been undue
interference by former
public works minister
Geoff Doidge and his
deputy Hendrietta
Bogopane-Zulu in
appointing contractors
Says state costs for
Nkandla upgrades
should only have been
R28 million
Calls it a ‘fire pool’

spending at President Jacob Zuma’s
Nkandla home compare
