Deliberately lying to Parliament carries with it a potential two-year jail sentence… If that is the finding she makes it will be the most serious finding ever made against a sitting president by a public protector.— Karyn Maughan, journalist - TimesLive
Public protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has confirmed that President Cyril Ramaphosa is implicated in her investigation into the R500 000 donation he received from Bosasa CEO Gavin Watson.
President Ramaphosa has, according to Mkhwebane, asked to cross-examine some of those she had interviewed, including DA leader Mmusi Maimane.
It was Maimane who requested her to investigate Ramaphosa.
Maimane accuses the public protector of not properly investigating the Gupta-linked Vrede dairy project scandal.
The DA wants Parliament to vote on her fitness to hold office.
