Johannesburg – The Democratic Alliance has called for transparency in the manner in which President Jacob Zuma pays the stipulated R7.8m for non-security upgrades at his Nkandla homestead. This after the City Press reported that members of his family were in the final stages of securing a loan to pay the debt, as opposed to accepting donations. The paper cited family associates and several people close to the discussions that negotiations were at an advanced stage after VBS Bank and Zuma’s lawyer, Michael Hulley, agreed to terms at a meeting in Sandton last Wednesday. The DA’s shadow minister in the Presidency, Sej Motau, said that even if a loan was taken for Zuma, someone else could pay it back on his behalf. “The only way that justice will truly prevail is for Jacob Zuma, and no one else but Jacob Zuma, to pay back every cent,” he said.“To this end, we again demand that all relevant proof of payments be made public, and be furnished to Parliament, in the interest of accountability and transparency,” Motau added. He said that South Africa could not allow Zuma to get away with “this Nkandla corruption”.
