Pretoria - The government welcomes Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's report on President Jacob Zuma's Nkandla home, Justice Minister Jeff Radebe said on Wednesday.

“Government will reflect on the findings and recommendations contained therein with a view to determining the way forward,” he told reporters in Pretoria.

“The ministers of public works, police, defence have taken full accountability for this project and through government investigation, has unearthed issues of maladministration and corruption in this project,” he said.

Radebe said the Special Investigating Unit is investigating the matter “to bring those in the public and private sectors who are implicated to book”.

Madonsela released her final report on the security upgrades to Zuma's homestead in KwaZulu-Natal earlier the day.

She found that Zuma and his family had unduly benefited from the upgrades.

Madonsela recommended that the president pay back a percentage of the cost of measures which were not related to security.
