More than six years into the Nkandla scandal, President Jacob Zuma on Tuesday proposed a settlement in the Constitutional Court case brought by the opposition that would see him reimburse the state for improvements to his rural home.

The presidency said Zuma proposed in a letter sent to the registrar of the court that it order the finance minister and Auditor-General to determine an appropriate amount to be refunded.

“To achieve an end to the drawn-out dispute in a manner that meets the Public Protector’s recommendations and is beyond political reproach, the president proposes that the determination of the amount he is to pay should be independently and impartially determined,” the presidency said.
