Public Protector spokesperson, Kgalalelo Masibi, says the ground for the Presidency's interdict to stop Public Protector from releasing her report into state capture is that President Jacob Zuma has not been given enough time.
Masibi says the President has said the list of questions posed to him by Advocate Thuli Madonsela was very long and requires him to provide information he does not have at his disposal.
Zuma also mentioned that he had to go to Kenya and had not been given enough time to answer the questions.
He wants to examine evidence and the list of witnesses.
Masibi says the President does has the right to ask questions but they have to go through the Public Protector.
She says the Public Protector is not surprised by the interdict as the President had requested Madonsela to defer the investigation to the incoming Public Protector Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane.
She [Madonsela] is currently consulting with her lawyers obtaining legal advice on how to proceed.— Kgalalelo Masibi, Public Protector spokesperson
