Public protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane finds Ramaphosa breached his executive ethics code


Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has found that President Cyril Ramaphosa breached his executive ethics code when he told parliament that he was unaware of the Bosasa donation.

Mkhwebane released her report into the complaint laid by DA leader Mmusi Maimane.

The report is in relation to the R500 000 donation made to Ramaphosa’s ANC presidential campaign leading up to the ANC’s Nasrec conference.

Mkhwebane found that Ramaphosa deliberately misled parliament when he was questioned about the donation.

She said Ramaphosa violated section 96(1) of the constitution.

The matter relating to the donation had been hanging over Ramaphosa’s head since November last year, when he told the National Assembly, in an answer to a question from Maimane, that his son had received money from Bosasa for services rendered in terms of a consultancy contract.

He told Parliament then that he had seen the contract.

Ramaphosa later backtracked in a letter to then-speaker Baleka Mbete, saying the R500 000 payment from Bosasa was actually a donation to his ANC presidential campaign, which he had been unaware of.

It later emerged that Andile Ramaphosa did indeed do consultancy work for Bosasa, and his father refused to disclose how much he was paid for this work when Maimane questioned it in the National Assembly in March this year, saying the issue was with the Public Protector.

Maimane laid a complaint with the Public Protector in November last year, alleging the president had misled the National Assembly over this issue.


  1. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this
    blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to
    get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal.
    I must say you’ve done a superb job with this. In addition, the blog loads very fast for me on Opera.
    Exceptional Blog!

  2. Hey there this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with
    HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance
    from someone with experience. Any help would
    be enormously appreciated!

  3. Hey there! I understand this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established website such as yours require a massive amount work?

    I am brand new to writing a blog however I do write in my diary daily.

    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and views online.

    Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.


  4. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text
    in your post seem to be running off the screen in Safari.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but
    I thought I’d post to let you know. The layout
    look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon.
    Many thanks

  5. First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.

    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to
    writing. I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
