Madonsela on Friday decided not to release her report as initially planned. “We have given it to the Speaker of Parliament for safe-keeping‚” she said.

Madonsela was due to release her investigative report on Friday‚ but separate applications to interdict its release by Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister Des van Rooyen and President Jacob Zuma threw a spanner in the works.

Zuma’s application is set to be heard by the High Court in Pretoria on Tuesday. Van Rooyen’s application was postponed to November 1. The report will remain in safekeeping until a ruling is made by the court.

It deals with allegations that the Gupta family had influenced the appointment of members of the cabinet.
