Cape Town - Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has to be certain that "all is clear" before her office can release the "state capture" report, her spokesperson said on Wednesday.

This after President Jacob Zuma's surprise withdrawal of his interdict against it on Wednesday.

"The [Public Protector] has noted reports that the president has withdrawn his application for an interdict," said spokesperson Oupa Segalwe.

"We don't have a problem releasing the report, except we need to be sure that all is clear. As you would know, there is still the application by Minister Mosebenzi Zwane to consider. We are closely following developments on that, as well as the current proceedings in court."
