Madonsela has been responding to questions from reporters in Pretoria regarding her report into alleged undue benefits to Preseident Jacob Zuma and his family from the R246-million upgrades to their home.
Madonsela has hit back at several accusations against her, including that her report "Secure in Comfort" targets the President.
She has explained that "Secure in Comfort" was the 11th executive members' ethics act report issued since becoming Public Protector.
Answering a question about having released the report at a media briefing, Madonsela said it's common practice.
"It's also a global practice by ombudsmanlike institutions across the globe. It's also in line with the founding values of our democracy, which include openness and transparency, as entrenched in Section 1 of the constitution," she said.
Madonsela says claims the report also fails to address the involvement of officials and contractors are not true.
"The report identifies all key actors in the supply chain management process from deciding what to install to procuring such items and indicating irregularities by each, where uncovered," she said.
The Public Protector says her office has never before received as many attacks from politicians as it has since the report looking into upgrades at President Jacob Zuma's private home in Nkandla was released.
