Johannesburg - Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's office has indicated that the investigation into President Jacob Zuma's Nkandla homestead will take longer to conclude than expected, according to a report on Monday.

The deadline was the end of March, but Oupa Segalwe, spokesperson for the public protector, told Beeld on Sunday night that they were still waiting for the public works department to provide crucial documents.

"We also underestimated the number of documents that we have to examine. We have to be comprehensive to complete our mandate properly."

According to Segalwe, negotiations are under way between the public protector and the department of public works to get the required documents.

Thulas Nxesi, minister of public works, said earlier that the government had spent R206m on security upgrades and consultants at Zuma's private Nkandla home.
