Pretoria - The Nkandla report could end up in the hands of those who laid a complaint with the Office of the Public Protector, it was reported on Monday.

The SABC reported that Public Protector Thuli Madonsela had "virtually finalised" the provisional Nkandla report, but did not know to whom it should be handed.

"Not that we did not know who to give the report. We can give it to responsible institutions or complainants, and there are a number of them," Madonsela told reporters in Pretoria.

She said when it came to investigating members of the executive, the report was normally given to the president, but now it was a bit tricky as the report was about him.

"In this instance, we raised a question as to, since the report deals with the president, who do we give it to," she said.

Madonsela said she encountered "unusual challenges" while compiling the report into the upgrade of President Jacob Zuma's home in Nkandla, KwaZulu-Natal.

"The Nkandla report.... Yes. I don't want to talk about some of the journey, challenges that we faced with that one. I think people will see in the report what are some of the issues that arose as we went through it, but yes, it has had unusual challenges."

She said the one issue that would arise, and which had been raised with the presidency, was to whom to give the report.

"You will recall that one of the investigations that I did in my early phases as Public Protector was about the conduct of the president and we didn't know then who to give the report to," she said.

"With the new one, we would have hoped that by that time they would have implemented their undertaking to amend the act, so there's a different place to send the report to. That amendment has not been done."

Last year, the Democratic Alliance asked Madonsela to investigate whether Zuma's family improperly benefited from the upgrade to his home.

Shortly before this, Zuma told Parliament that the government was paying to upgrade the security at his home, but that he had taken out a bond to pay for the rest of the upgrade.
