Johannesburg - In her first interview with the press since handing over her report into the R200m Nkandla scandal, Public Protector Thuli Madonsela has implied that the outcome will not live up to the public outcry over the issue.

Speaking to the Sunday Independent, she remained largely tight-lipped over the findings but said people might be disappointed at the findings especially if the law authorised the expenditure.

Ministers of State Security, Police and Defence have until Wednesday to comment on whether making the report public would compromise the president’s security.

DA Parliamentary leader Lindiwe Mazibuko, who called for the probe, said in response to these comments that she was prepared to exhaust all possible avenues to ensure accountability.

Mazibuko called for the probe after it emerged that over R200m was spent to upgrade President Jacob Zuma’s home in Nkandla in Kwa-Zulu Natal.
