JOHANNESBURG - The African National Congress (ANC) in KwaZulu-Natal says now that Treasury has announced how much President Jacob Zuma must pay for non-security upgrades at his Nkandla home, he must do so and finally put the Nkandla controversy to rest.

The ANC is currently holding its Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) meeting in Durban.

The National treasury has determined that Zuma pay back just over R7,8 million for non-security upgrades at his home.

It's understood Treasury's determination of how much Zuma must pay has now been discussed in the PEC meeting.

ANC KZN spokesperson Mdumiseni Ntuli says they welcome the announcement.

The provincial party earlier said the Nkandla controversy is a non-issue in the province.

It now says this announcement made by Treasury won't affect Zuma's Popularity in the province.

Congress of the South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) President Sdumo Dlamini says the president must pay and finally put the matter to rest.

While The Constitutional Court still needs to rubberstamp the amount, ANC provincial leaders say the latest development won't change people's perception of President Zuma.

WATCH: I'm not going to pay back the money
