Durban - DA national spokesperson Mmusi Maimane laid a charge of corruption against President Jacob Zuma on Thursday.

Maimane said he did so at the Nkandla police station near the president's Nkandla private homestead.

"Criminal charges have been laid against President Jacob Zuma at the scene of the crime in Nkandla," said Maimane.

"There can be no doubt that this Nkandla palace was built on corruption by the president for the president with our money."

The laying of charges follows Wednesday's release of Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's final report on the upgrades to Zuma's private Nkandla homestead in KwaZulu-Natal.

In her report, Madonsela found Zuma "unduly benefited from the enormous capital investment" in the Nkandla upgrades, totalling R246m.

Comment from the police could not be immediately obtained.
