JOHANNESBURG South African President Jacob Zuma failed to "uphold, defend and respect" the constitution when he ignored the order of an anti-corruption watchdog to repay some of the $16 million spent to upgrade his private home, the Constitutional Court ruled on Thursday.
After delivering a stinging rebuke to the scandal-plagued leader, the court gave Zuma 105 days to repay the "reasonable cost" of non-security-related upgrades to his sprawling rural residence at Nkandla in KwaZulu-Natal.
