Cape Town - The Democratic Alliance (DA) has called on Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane to release four reports involving the Gupta family on Monday "in the interest of transparency and the South African public".
Mkhwebane gave notice five months ago that she would indeed oppose Zuma's ongoing legal challenge, saying the reason for this was to comply with court rules.
Mkhwebane said the conduct of government and the SARB constitutes "improper conduct and maladministration".
Her office told the newspaper that the reports were pending, not buried.
"This is quite unusual that a Public Protector has been so specific on changing the constitution or indeed be so radical on transformation", he said.

And in the game of he-said, he-said between Trump and Comey, the president's history hands the victory to the G-man, hands down. He was obviously angry about some of the claims made by James Comey and the "secret innuendo" being thrown against him.
Economists Nic Borain and Jeff Schultz at BNP Paribas South Africa said in a note that the Public Protector had placed the future of the central bank's autonomy into question.
In her findings against Barclays, which trades under the name of Absa, Mkhwebane said the bank had unduly benefited from apartheid-era bailouts and must repay 1.125 billion rand ($87 million). At the time the preliminary report was compiled, these parties had not yet responded to investigators at the public protector's office.
For remedial action, Mkhwebane has referred the matter to the Special Investigating Unit, which must in turn approach President Jacob Zuma to reopen the presidential proclamation R47 of 1998 "in order to recover the misappropriated public funds unlawfully given to ABSA Bank in the amount of R1.125 billion".
I am opposing the review by the President, including the Minister Zwane and Minister van Rooyen's applications because remember, they've also applied for judicial review to set aside the whole report.
The bank says after reading the Public Protector's full report it will consider its options which may include a judicial review.
