JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South Africa’s National Treasury has found that President Jacob Zuma should pay 7.8 million rand ($510,074) for non-security upgrades to his private Nkandla home, 702 Talk Radio reported on Monday.

The top court in Africa’s most industrialised country in March ordered Zuma to pay back some of the $16 million of state money spent upgrading his private home. Zuma said he would comply and pay back a portion of the money.
