Why DA rejects Zuma's #PayBackTheMoney proposal

The Democratic Alliance has rejected President Jacob Zuma's proposal to pay back some of the money used for upgrades to his Nkandla homestead, before the matter reaches the Constitutional Court next week.

In a statement on Tuesday evening, the Presidency said Zuma proposed appointing the Auditor General to determine how much money he needed to pay.
Speaking in Sandton, the DA leadership said it would continue to pursue the matter.
It believes it's important to do so in order to set a legal precedent.

President Zuma previously said he would not be paying back any of the money despite findings by the Public Protector Thuli Madonsela that he and his family had unduly benefitted from the non-security upgrades.
DA leader Mmusi Maimane said Zuma's reaction to Madonsela's recommendations had understimated her work.
Meanwhile, the EFF has also reiterated its stance that the president's response should be in line with the Madonsela's recommendations.
It's set to brief the media for an official statement on Thursday.
Watch the video above for the DA's press briefing as it happened.
