The DA will not enter into a settlement on the Nkandla matter, despite President Jacob Zuma's proposal, its leader Mmusi Maimane said on Thursday.

The Constitutional Court has given the parties involved in the matter until 16:00 on Friday to reach a settlement.

"We have written back and said we will not settle," Maimane told the Cape Town Press Club.

"It's not just about the money. We want the powers of the public protector to be recognised. So if we settle out of court, then her powers will still be under debate."

He said the DA wrote back to Constitutional Court on Wednesday.
