PRETORIA - President Jacob Zuma has been asked to disclose the conditions of the R7.8 million loan he took to pay for the non-security upgrades to his Nkandla estate.

The Presidency and the Treasury confirmed yesterday that Zuma has complied with the Constitutional Court and paid the money into the national revenue fund.

LISTEN: How to qualify for a R7.8 million loan.

The court ruled in March that the president failed to uphold, defend and respect the Constitution after he ignored the Public Protector's recommendations following her investigation into the costly upgrades.

The Economic Freedom Fighters' Fana Mokoena says Zuma must disclose the details of the loan he has taken from VBS Mutual Bank.

"We are concerned that the bank has given this money in the form of a loan so we want to know what the conditions of it are."

LISTEN: Zuma pays back the money.

Congress of the People's Dennis Bloem simply doesn't trust the president and wants him to produce proof.

"Mr Zuma has said on many occasions that he will not pay that money back, so that is why we are questioning this payment."

The African National Congress has not yet commented.
