JOHANNESBURG - Public Protector Thuli Madonsela is today expecting to hear back from the country's security cluster as to whether her Nkandla report puts President Jacob Zuma's security at risk.

Today marks the deadline Madonsela gave numerous organs of state to determine whether the report should be classified.

The Public Protector's Oupa Segalwe says they understand the public interest in this case, but have had to consider serious security issues.

"Upon receiving these comments today, the Public Protector will consider them and thereafter share the report with the rest of the parties."

He says those affected will be able to give their feedback before the report is finalised.

But additional security measures will be taken.

"It's not all of the other parties that will get hard copies. They will be invited to our offices to come and view the report there."

Madonsela has been quoted as saying South Africans may be disappointed with the outcome of the report, a move which has drawn criticism from the African National Congress.
