President Jacob Zuma must pay back the money spent by the state on non-security upgrades at his Nkandla residence within 105 days.

The Constitutional Court made this order on Thursday after confirming that the remedial action taken against Zuma by public protector Thuli Madonsela was binding.
Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng said Zuma’s failure to comply with Madonsela’s remedial action was inconsistent with the constitution and invalid.
He said the treasury must determine the reasonable cost of the upgrades not related to security‚ namely the visitors centre‚ amphitheatre‚ cattle kraal‚ chicken run and swimming pool.
The treasury must report back to the court on this cost in 60 days and Zuma must “personally pay back” the money within 45 days following that report.
Mogoeng also said the National Assembly acted inconsistent with constitution when it absolved Zuma from complying with Madonsela’s remedial action. That decision was invalid‚ the court said‚ and set it aside.
