The real shame of the #NkandlaReport is that they used B-grade lies. The nation deserves A-rated lies. We demand to be lied to with skill.— Tom Eaton (@TomEatonSA) May 28, 2015
Tutu Blasts GovernmentGot to love the journalist who asked the minister if he thinks South Africans are stupid. #NkandlaReport— JodiTocker (@JodiTocker) May 28, 2015
"Instead of setting a good example, our public representatives are humiliating themselves, our country and our people by trying to defend the indefensible," said Tutu.
He added that the minister's decision to dismiss the Public Protector's report "bodes particularly ill for the future of good governance".
"It is unconscionable to spend hundreds of millions of rand on the president's spurious 'security' needs," said Tutu.
"The power of the government to manipulate justice comes at great cost to our reputation, our development potential and our hard-won self-belief.
"I am deeply saddened," added the Archbishop, who is regarded internationally as a moral authority.
No more evidence of Pres. Zuma’s utter contempt for South African citizens needed than today’s farcical #NkandlaReport cover-up.— Julian Rademeyer (@julianrademeyer) May 28, 2015
