Johannesburg – The EFF has no legal basis to approach the Constitutional Court regarding the Nkandla matter, President Jacob Zuma argues in an affidavit, eNCA reported on Tuesday.

The matter should be taken to a high court and the public protector and police minister should be part of the case, Zuma reportedly said in the affidavit.

It was filed after the Constitutional Court earlier this month announced it would hear the EFF's case that Zuma should be made to pay for some of the spending on his Nkandla home.

This was one of the recommendations in Public Protector Thuli Madonsela’s report, entitled Secure in Comfort. Zuma should have to repay a reasonable portion of the R246m spent on non-security related upgrades to his private KwaZulu-Natal homestead, she said.

Presidency spokesperson Bongani Majola said he did not know about the affidavit, and that any communication regarding the matter would take place through the courts.

The Constitutional Court was expected to hear the matter in February.
