Last week, Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa told the National Assembly that he would come clean after the Sunday Independent published details around his alleged extramarital affairs.
Answering questions in the National Council of Provinces on Wednesday afternoon, Ramphosa backed out from addressing the matter.
He said he’s been advised by a number of leaders within the African National Congress (ANC), against making any further statement on the allegations around his personal life.
