The Democratic Alliance said on Monday that President Jacob Zuma admitted that National Key Point Act processes were not followed in the construction of his Nkandla home.
DA Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko said that Zuma also revealed he did not receive notification that the site had been declared a national key point, as is required by Section 3 of the National Key Point Act of 1980.
Zuma provided a written reply to Mazibuko's question on the controversial development.
She said the flouting of the act's processes was evidence that it was used to hide details of the upgrade, reportedly costing more than R250-million.
"We are going to ask further questions to the ministers of police and defence to establish what they are doing to get this money back from President Zuma. He owes the South African people R250-million for this upgrade."
