Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has found that President Cyril Ramaphosa deliberately misled parliament about a R500,000 donation.

The investigation followed a complaint by DA leader Mmusi Maimane after parliament heard that Bosasa, a company that had dodgy contracts with government departments, had given R500,000 to Ramaphosa’s election campaign.

Maimane asked Mkhwebane to investigate whether Ramaphosa misled parliament when he was first asked about a Bosasa donation to his campaign. Ramaphosa at first denied the donation, then admitted it.

This is a developing story.
