PRETORIA - Government says it’ll fight the Public Protestor’s Nkandla report in court.

It says advocate Thuli Madonsela has refused to engage with the state over its concerns regarding the document.

GCIS spokesperson Pumla Williams has told eNCA government ministers believed the Nkandla report was contradictory, and required clarification from a High Court.

She added there was consensus among government officials, that there had been wrongdoing in the Nkandla upgrade.

However, some concerns regarding the report needed to be addressed.

Security cluster ministers believe sections of the Nkandla report are contradictory.

Williams says papers challenging some of the finding and recommendations will be filed in the next week.

Madonsela’s office says it hasn’t received any notification of the planned court action.
