CAPE TOWN - Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema is expected to set out his party's position in response to President Jacob Zuma's bid to settle the Nkandla spending dispute, today.

The party filed papers in the Constitutional Court last year in a bid to compel Zuma to pay back some of the public money spent on upgrading his Nkandla home.

The Democratic Alliance (DA) then also approached the court after Parliament adopted a report which concluded that Zuma didn't owe a cent.

The EFF, a party that has built a political campaign around the Nkandla issue, has been mobilising for a march on the Constitutional Court to coincide with when the Nkandla matter is heard.

Malema is expected to outline his party's strategy during a media briefing today.

DA leader Mmusi Maimane has made it clear his party is pushing ahead with legal action.

"We're confident that the Constitutional Court will bring the Nkandla matter to its logical conclusion by concluding that the president do what the Secure and Comfort report by the Public Protector has ordered."
