Madonsela insists Zuma should pay his Nkandla bill, not his supporters
This comes as some structures of the ANC mobilise members to help pay for the costs outlined by Treasury.
JOHANNESBURG - The Public Protector says her report indicated that President Jacob Zuma should pay the amount of R7.8 million for his Nkandla home and not supporters.
This comes as some structures of the African National Congress mobilise members to help pay for the costs outlined by Treasury.
Thuli Madonsela spoke to Eyewitness News on the sidelines of the 80th anniversary celebrations of the Temple Israel in Hillbrow.
Last month, Treasury submitted its report to the Constitutional Court saying it believes the president should pay back the amount.
It all started earlier this year with the friends of Jacob Zuma Trust, comprising of the country's leading businessman, then Mpumalanga Premier David Mabuza followed and now it's the KZN ANC who have called on members to help.
But Madonsela says while she can't speculate how the president will source money her report was clear.
"We said that the president and his family were unduly enriched by these additional renovations to his home that is all we said. Where the money should come from, we asked the president to pay."
She says her office will close the Nkandla chapter when the president pays the money.
