Johannesburg - There was "a bit of a cover-up" over the security upgrades at President Jacob Zuma's Nkandla homestead according to former ANC treasurer general Mathews Phosa, Eyewitness News reported on Wednesday.

"I don't think anybody has tried to justify Nkandla. I think there is a bit of a cover-up and I think we need to know the truth, and the sooner we know the truth the better," Phosa told the radio news station.

Public Works Minister Thulas Nxesi has declined to make available a task team report into why his department spent over R200m on Zuma's private home in KwaZulu-Natal.

Nxesi has said the report was classified.
