The Public Protector welcomes the ConCourt ruling
Public Protector Thuli Madonsela says the Constitutional Court ruling on Nkandla is a victory for every South African who turns to their office. She says the court’s ruling has re-affirmed the powers of the Public Protector. President Jacob Zuma and the National Assembly were found to have acted unconstitutionally, and now president Zuma, has been ordered to pay back a portion of the money. Madonsela has estimated the amount to be paid back by the president over Nkandla at R10 million. However she conceded that the amount could change because it was estimated in the early stages of the investigation.
