Pretoria, 31 March 2016 - Public Protector, Thuli Madonsela says her office is not really equipped to determine just how much President Jacob Zuma needs to pay back.

PRETORIA - Outgoing public protector Thuli Madonsela said on Friday a report into allegations of political interference by wealthy friends of President Jacob Zuma has been submitted to Parliament for safekeeping pending a court case that delayed its release.

"It is not an interim report, that is my final report.

"We have given it to the Speaker of Parliament for safekeeping," Madonsela told reporters in the capital.

"I am not at liberty to discuss any aspect of that report."

Zuma on Thursday filed a court application to block the release of the report, which was due on Friday.
