Public Protector finds Ramaphosa 'deliberately misled' Parliament over Bosasa

Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has found President Cyril Ramaphosa deliberately misled Parliament in relation to a R 500,000 donation to his African National Congress (ANC) election campaign fund from Bosasa (African Global Operations).

The advocate released the findings of her report at a briefing in Pretoria on Friday.

In November 2018, Ramaphosa responded to a question in which he claimed that the money was, in fact, payment to his son for services rendered but he later corrected that.

In her findings, Mkhwebane says Ramaphosa exposed himself to a conflict of interest.

Eyewitness News reporter Barry Bateman has more.

She found that he deliberately misled Parliament and ought to have known or he did know in fact how the funds were being managed in this particular account.

When he made this claim she finds that he didn't give himself sufficient time to go and research a proper response and therefore he delivering misled parliament.
