PRETORIA - Public funds were not spent on building South African President Jacob Zuma a house in his home village, state investigators said on Sunday in a report that sought to end one of the biggest scandals to hit Zuma before elections next year.

The report did say the government had spent 206 million rand ($22.98 million) on security upgrades and related costs at the president's private compound, and that this decision was based on an assessment of threats to Zuma.

Opposition politicians and media have said Zuma used up to 250 million rand of state funds to upgrade his private residence in his home village of Nkandla, in KwaZulu-Natal province.
