Parliamentary questions to South Africa's President Jacob Zuma descended into chaos after opposition MPs prevented him from speaking.

Economic Freedom Fighters members demanded to know when Mr Zuma was going to pay back the taxpayer's money used to upgrade his private home.

Last month, the police minster said the president would not have to repay almost 4m rand ($328,000; ₵1,497,733.00) of state money spent to upgrade his private home in Nkandla.

Correspondents say Mr Zuma, appearing for his quarterly question time in parliament, may have been asked about how Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir was allowed to leave the country on Monday, despite a court order considering his arrest.
