Treasury has confirmed that President Jacob Zuma has paid back the R7,8m he owed for upgrades to his private home in Nkandla, it has been reported.

A panel of six experts from two quantity surveyor firms helped the National Treasury determine how much Zuma had to pay for the upgrades. Treasury had recommended Zuma pay R7.81 million rand for non-security-related features, including R2.3m for the so-called swimming pool, R1m for the amphitheatre and R1.2m for the cattle kraal.

The Constitutional Court ruled in March that Zuma had violated the constitution by not abiding by the Public Protector’s recommendation that he should pay some of the money spent on the residence.
