CAPE TOWN - The ANC has confirmed the controversial Public Protector's Nkandla report is one of the items to be discussed at its National Executive Committee (NEC) Meeting.

The ruling party's top brass has been behind closed doors for the past two days in Cape Town discussing the state of the party.

The meeting is expected to conclude on Sunday.

The ruling party's spokesperson Jackson Mthembu would not divulge any details on the nature of the discussions around the public protector's damning findings on President Jacob Zuma's KwaZulu-Natal homestead.

Mthembu has however confirmed that it's definitely on the agenda.

Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's report found that the president has improperly benefited from the estimated R246 million security upgrades to his Nkandla home.

Her recommendations also include that Zuma pay back a percentage of the costs.

Meanwhile, the Democratic Alliance (DA) is demanding that a payment plan be tabled in parliament.
