Breaking News image

South African President Jacob Zuma has promised to abide by a court ruling that he must repay government money spent on his private home.

“I respect the judgement and will abide by it,” Mr Zuma said.

On Thursday, South Africa’s highest court said he was violating the constitution by refusing to pay.

The case was brought by the opposition, which accused him of using “ill-gotten wealth” to upgrade his home with a swimming pool and amphitheatre.

Mr Zuma had denied any wrongdoing.
