Everyone has been asked to take their seats, News24's Genevieve Quintal says.

The judges are about to arrive.


While we wait, the parties involved in the Constitutional Court matter regarding President Jacob Zuma's Nkandla home did not reach a settlement with Jacob Zuma on Friday over the matter.

The court had given them until 16:00 on Friday to respond to a settlement proposed by Zuma on Tuesday.

The EFF had proposed its own order which it wanted the Constitutional Court to hand down.The party wanted the court to confirm that the public protector's power to take remedial action included the power to issue directions binding on organs of state, according to a copy of the order.

It wanted directions given in her March 2014 report, "Secure in Comfort", to remain binding on Zuma.

This included paying a reasonable percentage of the cost of non-security upgrades.

“Lots of police walking around, as well as many police vans parked all around the court,” says Genevieve Quintal.

The Economic Freedom Fighters and DA want the court to compel Zuma to implement Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's recommendations and repay a reasonable part of the R246m spent on so-called security upgrades to his Nkandla, KwaZulu-Natal homestead.

On Tuesday morning, EFF leader Julius Malema would lead a "pay back the money" march starting at Mary Fitzgerald Square in Newtown, and ending at the Constitutional Court, ahead of the hearing.


The EFF, DA, and the public protector, want the court to clarify the nature and extent of the chapter nine institution’s powers to take remedial action.

Legal certainty about the public protector’s powers was vital to a successful constitutional democracy, Democratic Alliance federal executive chairperson James Selfe said.

The Constitutional Court case about Nkandla is about more than getting President Jacob Zuma to repay taxpayer’s money, but about protecting the Constitution and public protector, political parties say.

    The 1980s were the beat occasion for music, peculiarly rock. There were so uncountable different styles of ruined, like metal and glam ruined, and so many unusual bands in each style.There are silence diverse tremendous bands from second then that are in any event pleasant crowds today.

    Unlike most of the music around today, people could really understand the lyrics to songs in the [url=]80s Music[/url]. A lot of the air lyrics today are rhymed so sybaritic that they’re bordering on farcical to understand. Orderly in spite of some songs today state a story inclusive of the lyrics, most, if not all, 80’s songs told a story. An exemplar is “Welcome to the Jungle” around Guns N’ Roses, which tells a dispatch of the at any cost and hazardous survival of living in the streets or the evil side of a altogether city like Los Angeles.
