EFF to outline its stance on Zuma's proposed Nkandla settlement

Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema will today set out his party's official position in response to President Jacob Zuma's bid to settle the Nkandla spending debacle.

Zuma proposed that the Auditor-General and the Minister of Finance should determine the amount he should repay of the R246 million spent on his private home.

Reporting from the EFF headquarters, EWN's Masa Kekana on Thursday said Malema will reveal if his party would continue with the legal action at the Constitutional Court next week.

Listen to the full conversation from The Midday Report with Stephen Grootes:
