Pretoria - There was no evidence public money was spent on President Jacob Zuma's private Nkandla home, Public Works Minister Thulas Nxesi said on Sunday.

“There is no evidence that any house belonging to the president was built with public money,” Nxesi told reporters in Pretoria.

However, security upgrades were carried out.

“The security upgrades done at the Nkandla residence amount to R71 212 621.78 including consultancy fees,” he said. - Sapa
