Johannesburg - Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's findings on President Jacob Zuma's Nkandla home shows that the ANC-led government cannot be trusted, the NFP said on Friday.

"The voters have only one option, and that is, to vote the ANC-led government out," said National Freedom Party secretary general Professor Nhlanhla Khubisa.

"His excellency... President Jacob Zuma has got to give answers to the South African populace. He has got to apologise in Parliament openly."

Madonsela on Thursday released her final report which found that Zuma and his family had unduly benefited from security upgrades at his Nkandla homestead in KwaZulu-Natal.

The upgrades included the establishment of a visitors' centre, a cattle kraal, a chicken coup, a swimming pool, and an amphitheatre.

By the time Madonsela had concluded her investigation, R215m had been spent. The total cost to complete the project was conservatively put at R246m.

Madonsela recommended that Zuma pay back a percentage of the cost of non-security measures.

Khubisa on Friday said this would be the honourable thing for Zuma to do.

"As the NFP, we are ready to govern this country because the ANC-led government has betrayed South Africans," he said.
