Public Protector Thuli Madonsela is still awaiting information to complete a probe into the upgrade of President Jacob Zuma’s Nkandla home.

“The relevant party has been requested to provide the outstanding information by September 30 2013,” Madonsela’s spokesperson, Kgalalelo Masibi, said today.

“Upon receipt of the information, the Public Protector will finalise the provisional report, which will only be shared with affected parties.”

Madonsela’s report is expected to shed light on how money was spent on refurbishing President Jacob Zuma’s private homestead at Nkandla in KwaZulu-Natal.

Masibi said the purpose of releasing a provision report was to give affected parties an opportunity to respond to the findings.

She reminded the media that section (7)2 of the Public Protector Act prohibited the disclosure and publication of the contents of a provisional report.

“The Public Protector will study the responses and integrate them to the extent possible in the final report.

“The responses will not be discussed or commented on, as this undermines the integrity of the investigation as well as the Public Protector’s effectiveness,” Masibi said.

The final report would be made public after it had been finalised. The date had not yet been set.
