Johannesburg - Public Service and Administration Minister Lindiwe Sisulu is sceptical about whether enough time was spent on the public protector's final report on the security upgrades at Nkandla, the Star reported on Monday.

"I hope she [Public Protector Thuli Madonsela] would have finished her report by the way," Sisulu reportedly said.

"I hope she has completed her investigation because for an investigation of this magnitude, I don't think she has given herself enough time."

Sisulu was speaking to the newspaper at an election campaign in Sasolburg at the weekend.

She reportedly told the paper that she was "blindly neutral" about any of Madonsela's probes.

Madonsela is expected to release her final report on Wednesday.

More than R206m was spent on what was described as security upgrades at President Jacob Zuma's private Nkandla homestead in KwaZulu-Natal.

"We will see when it [the report] comes out. But as for us and myself as the minister of public service and administration, I would like to have very concrete evidence to say that it is possible for us to form a disciplinary process [against] officials who are responsible and make sure we take immediate disciplinary action," she reportedly said.
