The revamp of President Jacob Zuma`s private residence in Nkandla has been on the spotlight for a while.

The upgrade is estimated to cost taxpayers almost 250-million-rand.

The Democratic Alliance Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko said that the DA will not allow this to go unanswered.

Mazibuko said the economy is in crises and while millions of South Africans find themselves unemployed and in poverty.

Parliament's Standing Committee on Public Accounts will take the department of public works to task over the project.

Scopa Chairman Themba Godi said the department will be questioned about the Nkandla project when it presents its financial report to the committee but they will not be launching any stand-alone investigation into the matter.

The Public Protector Thuli Madonsela is already investigating the matter.
