FULL JUDGMENT: Public Protector's remedial action is binding

A little more than a month after the Constitutional Court heard arguments in the EFF and DA's application for an order that President Jacob Zuma repay some of the R246m spent on his Nkandla home, the court is ready to hand down judgment, News24's Genevieve Quintal writes.
Thursday’s judgment is expected to have a number of facets to it.
The EFF and the DA wanted Zuma to pay back a portion of the money spent on non-security upgrades to his homestead.
A few days before the hearing in February, Zuma sent a letter to the court's registrar to suggest that it order the Auditor General and finance minister to determine how much he should repay for non-security features at Nkandla.
The opposition parties wanted the court to rule on whether Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's remedial action, set out in her March 2014 report, Secure in Comfort, was binding.
