#PayBackTheMoney: The burning questions

Eyewitness News looks at some of the questions you may have, and what is known so far.

JOHANNESBURG - On Tuesday night, President Jacob Zuma announced he was willing to pay back some of the money for the upgrades to his Nkandla homestead.

This comes just over six years after the spending on his private home was first revealed.

The announcement has dominated news and conversation today, with column inches, web pages and radio airtime filled with discussion about what it means.

Eyewitness News looks at some of the questions you may have, and what is known so far.

WHAT DID THULI MADONSELA SAY?

Public Protector Thuli Madonsela stated that President Zuma and his family had unduly benefitted from the upgrades on his private residents, which had nothing to do with security.

WHERE DID HE UNDULY BENEFIT?

Madonsela stated that the kraal, chicken run, amphitheatre and fire pool should never have been built.

DO THE CLINIC AND HELICOPTER PAD BENEFIT THE COMMUNITY?

In Madonsela's report she concluded that the clinic was never intended to service the public.

HOW MUCH AND WHEN WILL HE BE EXPECTED TO PAY?

That's a question for the Auditor-General and Minister of Finance, who will decide how much Zuma will have to pay back. They will also most likely determine when the president will have to cough up.

HOW WILL THE AUDITOR-GENERAL AND FINANCE MINISTER DETERMINE WHAT A 'REASONABLE' AMOUNT IS?

By consulting the ethereal spirits of South Africa's economy.

THE DEMOCRATIC ALLIANCE IS STILL GOING TO THE CONCOURT. WHY?

DA leader Mmusi Maimane says while he notes Zuma's settlement offer, the opposition party contends that the contents of the proposal do not comply with the remedial action set out by the Public Protector.
