Cape Town - The Democratic Alliance will demand that President Jacob Zuma submit a full repayment plan for upgrades to his Nkandla homestead.

"...I will write to both President Jacob Zuma and the Speaker of the National Assembly Max Sisulu calling for the full-repayment plan for the money owed by the president to South Africa to be tabled in Parliament and made public," DA parliamentary leader Lindiwe Mazibuko said on Monday.

The party would forge ahead with attempts to initiate impeachment proceedings against Zuma after findings by Public Protector Thuli Madonsela that Zuma and his family had unduly benefited from R246m security upgrades to his private Nkandla homestead in KwaZulu-Natal.

Madonsela said Zuma should pay back taxpayers' money used for those part of the upgrades that were found not to be for security purposes.

DA MPs in the National Council of Provinces - which was currently still sitting - would submit questions to Zuma on the matter.

"President Zuma will have ten working days to reply to these questions," Mazibuko said.

"I can also announce further... that the DA will seek legal advice as to what recourse there is in the law to ensure that President Zuma and all other implicated parties comply fully with the recommendations in the report, should they fail to do so."

A motion to remove all Cabinet ministers implicated in the report would be tabled.

"This motion, which forces the president to reconstitute the Cabinet, is a mechanism by which Parliament can send a message to the president that the people no longer have faith in certain ministers in his Cabinet, and they must go," Mazibuko said.

"This motion will run concurrently with the motion to impeach President Zuma, given effect to by section 89 of the Constitution which provides for his removal only, and will prevent him from standing for public office again and from accruing any benefits of public office."
