Cape Town – In 21 days, the EFF will face off with President Jacob Zuma in the Constitutional Court to hold him accountable for paying for a portion of taxpayer-funded upgrades to his Nkandla homestead.

And the party is looking forward to the day.

The case will be heard in the Constitutional Court on February 9 2016, and the EFF will lead a march to the court on that day.

This is according to a "#PayBackTheMoney March to Concourt" clock on its website.

EFF national spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said they were expecting thousands to join the march.

The EFF wants the Constitutional Court to compel Zuma to implement Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's recommendations regarding the upgrades.

In her report, entitled Secure in Comfort, Madonsela recommended that Zuma pay back a reasonable portion of the R246m spent on upgrades to his Nkandla homestead not related to security - such as the swimming pool, cattle kraal and amphitheatre.

Last year, the party also started a countdown of the days leading up to the State of the Nation address, where they vowed to make sure that the president paid back the money spent on the Nkandla upgrades.
