Public Protector Thuli Madonsela has rubbished claims by ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe that her office had leaked the report on security upgrades to the president’s Nkandla homestead to the media.

“I gave an electronic version with passwords to five ministers in the security cluster,” she said. These ministers then afterwards told newspapers that they had given copies of the report to their officials to deal with security concerns. A hard copy of the report was also given to a judge on a confidential basis after the security cluster had taken Madonsela to court last month to try to force her to give them more time to respond to the security concerns. She also rubbished claims by Mantashe that she had admitted to leaking the report. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
