Court Orders Zuma to refund govt.’s  money spent on private home

The South Africa’s apex court has ruled that the country’s president, Jacob Zuma violated the constitution when he failed to repay government money spent on his private home.

The court gave the treasury 60 days to determine how much he should repay, BBC reports.

An anti-corruption body, known as the public protector, had in a ruling in 2014 said that $23m (£15m) was spent on Zuma’s rural home in KwaZulu-Natal province, and the president had “unduly benefited” from the renovations and should repay a portion of the money.

The latest ruling is a victory for the opposition, who said they would push for Mr. Zuma’s impeachment.

They accuse him of using “ill-gotten wealth” to upgrade his home with a swimming pool, amphitheatre, Visitor centre, Chicken run and Cattle enclosure .
