Treasury finds Zuma must pay back R7.8m for Nkandla. Corruption Watch reacts...
Where is the president going to get the money from? Uhm… Uhm… Where do rich people live? Saxonwold?Stephen Grootes
It’s not only about Nkandla. Cars for his wives, new aeroplanes for his comfort, friendship with the Guptas… – many people believe this is a President who plundered public resources. So, they're not going to be satisfied with it.David Lewis (Executive Director at Corruption Watch)
The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Stephen Grootes, EWN Reporter and Presenter of the Midday Report.
Grootes discussed National Treasury informing the Constitutional Court that it believes the amount of money that President Jacob Zuma should pay back for the upgrades to his Nkandla home amounts to just over R7.8 million.
Whitfield also asked Corruption Watch Executive Director David Lewis for his reaction.
