JOHANNESBURG - Public Protector Thuli Madonsela says if anyone is not happy with the Special Investigating Unit (SIU)'s findings into Nkandla, which will be presented in Parliament next week, another court process will have to unfold.

A confident Madonsela says nobody will 'second guess' her Nkandla findings, not the SIU, nor a court.

In March the Public Protector released her damning repor t into the president's quarter of a billion rand security upgrades at his KwaZulu-Natal home.

It was found that the president and his family unduly benefited from the upgrades and have to pay back a portion of the money spent.

Madonsela says according to the law, she is allowed to review the decisions made by the SIU but says a court process would rather be the next step.

"Because Nkandla has been such a mess and such an emotional matter, I would think that if anyone is not happy with the findings of the SIU they would have to go to a court of law."
