The Congress of the People said it will demand answers from President Jacob Zuma tomorrow regarding when he will pay the back the money spend on his Nkandla home.

President Zuma is on Wednesday expected to respond to oral questions in the National Assembly.

A report by Public Protector Thuli Madonsela suggested that President Zuma repay some of the money used to upgrade his home in Nkandla.

COPE’s Spokesperson Dennis Bloem said the Public Protector in a report found that the president and his family unduly benefited from what was meant to be security upgrades at his private residents.

Bloem added that Cope expects that the President Zuma will demonstrate tomorrow that he respects the constitution of our country.

“We believe that the president can defuse the tension tomorrow in parliament that he and the speaker have created by simply answering the pending question, when is he going to pay back the money.” Bloem added.
