At The New Age Business briefing on Friday, Zuma said it was unnecessary to take the Nkandla matter to the Constitutional Court, because he had already agreed to pay a portion of the money spent on his home.
According to EWN's Rahima Essop, Zuma wanted to demystify the perception that did not plan to pay for the upgrades to his private home.
He says the matter has been politicised and that he has always wanted to pay.— Rahima Essop, EWN reporter
