Ramaphosa responded to the demands in a letter on Friday.

It is understood that the president has told Moyane that he wants to wait for a decision from the chairperson of the disciplinary hearing to rule on whether he agrees that having two simultaneous inquiries is unfair.

Eyewitness News reporter Qaanitah Hunter has more on the story.

Tom Moyane's lawyer then came to the media and said they are extremely happy with the president's response and it was exactly what they wanted. The president has now taken a measured response to them.
