Cape Town - The Constitutional Court on Tuesday said it had approved the amount of R7.8m that President Jacob Zuma must pay for non-security upgrades at his Nkandla residence.

This comes after Treasury calculated that this was the amount payable by the president.

A Constitutional Court document posted on social media read: " Having regard to paragraphs 7 and 8 of its order of 31 March 2016, this Court signifies, with effect from the date of this letter, its approval of the amount of R7, 814, 155 as at June 2009, set out in the paragraph of the Report by National Treasury submitted to the Court on 27 June 2016."

Zuma has 45 days from today [Tuesday] to pay the money.
