The Waterkloof Airforce base, where 200 guests of the Gupta family landed in a chartered plane for a wedding in 2013, is not a national key point.

No other military base appeared on the national key points list published by the Mail & Guardian online on Friday.

President Jacob Zuma's Nkandla and other residences, former president Thabo Mbeki's home and former president Nelson Mandela's home were listed as national key points as at January 2015. Former president FW de Klerk's home was also listed.

Every provincial legislature was included on the list and projects such as the Square Kilometre Array telescope.

The main airports of Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban appeared, but those in Bloemfontein, Port Elizabeth and East London did not.

Petrol depots, pipelines, electricity infrastructure and the Reserve Bank were on the list as well as the SABC and its branches.

Police stations were also not listed as key points.

On December 3, the High Court in Johannesburg ruled in favour of the Right2Know Campaign and the SA History Archive and ordered the SA Police Service to disclose the list of protected areas within 30 days.
