Provisional Nkandla report to be released
Thuli Madonsela has been investigating govt spending on the President’s Nkandla homestead.
JOHANNESBURG - Public Protector Thuli Madonsela is expected to release a provisional report this week on her investigation into upgrades at President Jacob Zuma's Nkandla homestead in KwaZulu-Natal.
Madonsela is investigating how government spent over R200 million on the upgrades after allegations emerged about improper conduct and misappropriation of state funds.
Madonsela's spokesperson Oupa Segalwe says the report will first be handed over to all affected parties before it is made public.
"Without mentioning them or identifying them outright, affected parties would be the complainant, the respondent and the authority that should take action in the event."
Segalwe says their comments will be solicited before Madonsela completes her final report.
It's not clear when the document will be made available to the public as Madonsela will have to give all parties involved time to analyse the report and then give their feedback.
Public Works Minister Thulas Nxesi had argued that Nkandla is a National Key Point and therefore further information should not be made available to the public.
