CAPE TOWN - Details of how Parliament intends dealing with Police Minister Nkosinathi Nhleko's report on Nkandla are only expected to emerge once it resumes after the Easter recess.

Nhleko has completed his report which is expected to set out whether President Jacob Zuma must pay back some of the money spent on refurbishing his private home, and if so, how much.

In her report on the scandal, Public Protector Thuli Madonsela recommended that Zuma repay some of the money.

Parliament is yet to receive the police minister's report.

Spokesperson Luzuko Jacobs says clarity on how it will be processed will only be reached once Parliament resumes after recess on 14 April.

National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete has met with opposition parties who proposed the ad-hoc committee on Nkandla be reconstituted to deal Nhleko's report.

But while Mbete undertook that the appointment of the committee would be announced in Parliament's papers, this is yet to happen.

Jacobs has told Eyewitness News he expects the matter to be dealt with once Parliament resumes.
