Johannesburg - Accused of luxuriously extending his private residence at taxpayer expense, President Jacob Zuma doesn’t have to reimburse the State, according to Minister of Police, Nathi Nhleko, on Thursday. The government hopes to lay the Nkandla issue to rest. The president’s Nkandla home has been a point of contention since 2012, which has seriously disrupted the parliament’s job. In March 2014, Public Prosecutor, Thuli Madonsela, found that the president benefited illegally from the R240m ‘security upgrades’ done at his Nkandla home. The upgrades were reportedly designed to enhance the security of the head of state. Thus, the president is not required to reimburse the State for any of the upgrades, said Nhleko.
