Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane has just announced his party's decision to push ahead with a Constitutional Court case against President Jacob Zuma next Tuesday over the Nkandla spending fiasco.

Maimane says while he notes Zuma’s settlement offer, the DA contends that the contents of the proposal do not comply with the remedial action set out by the Public Protector.

In a statement released last night, the president proposed the amount he’s expected to pay back, relating to the controversial renovations at his private home, should be independently determined by the Auditor-General and minister of finance. DA leader spokesperson Mabine Seabe  said

“The presidents failure to engage to publics protectors findings and ruminal action were illegal and unconstitutional, the president has a clear case to answer in this regard.

It’s not a matter of merely paying back the money, it’s also a matter of upholding the rule of law and constitution. We as the DA are willing to fight this until the bitter end.”
