Johannesburg - Police Minister Nathi Nhleko has not yet started determining whether President Jacob Zuma should pay back part of the money spent upgrading his Nkandla homestead, Beeld reported on Wednesday.

He reportedly told the publication on Tuesday that he would not consider the Nkandla matter before the parliamentary processes had been completed.

"The report of the president is currently in the hands of Parliament and it must still be handled in Parliament," he was quoted as saying.

"Only after Parliament completes the process and accepts a resolution over the report, will I investigate the Nkandla matter in terms of the police portfolio."

Public Protector Thuli Madonsela in her report on the R246m spent on security upgrades at Zuma's Nkandla, KwaZulu-Natal, homestead, indicated the president needed to repay all non-security related expenses at Nkandla.

In his reply to her report, Zuma indicated Nhleko needed to determine if he should pay back any of the money.

Parliament has begun setting up an ad hoc committee to consider Zuma's response to the Nkandla controversy.
