Prosecutor Details How Ramaphosa Misled Parliament Over R500,000 Donation

Mkhwebane found earlier on Friday that Ramaphosa had deliberately misled Parliament when he responded to a question about a R500 000 donation to his 2017 ANC presidential campaign in November past year.

The current president has repeatedly vowed to fight corruption and win back public confidence.

"The CR17 campaign was funded by a broad range of individuals from across South Africa who supported the objectives of the campaign".

According to Mkhwebane's findings, there are valid grounds for suspicions of money laundering because the donation from AGO passed through several intermediaries.

Ms Mkhwebane said the way the funds were moved around from one account to another, before it was deposited into Mr Ramaphosa's campaign account, raised suspicion of money laundering.

Gibraltar extends detention of Iranian tanker for a month
So far the British government has only said that it is "assessing the situation following reports of an incident in the Gulf". Iran has vowed to respond to what it calls Britain's "piracy" over the seizure of the tanker.

The opposition complained to the corruption watchdog last November that Ramaphosa had misled the parliament and violated the executive ethics code regarding a donation made to his son by Gavin Watson, CEO of services company Bosasa, for his campaign to lead the African National Congress (ANC).

Mkhwebane said that Ramaphosa breached the Executive Ethics Code by failing to disclose financial interest accrued to him as a result of the donations received for the CR17 campaign, writes News24.

Mkhwebane wants President Cyril Ramaphosa to take remedial action against Gordhan after she found that he broke the rules when serving as SARS commissioner. A whistleblower also came forward with a similar complaint to that of Maimane and Shivambu.

Mkhwenbane has instructed the National Director of Public Prosecutions to start conducting further investigations into allegations of money laundering uncovered during the investigations. The question was posed to him by Musi Maimane, leader of the opposition Democratic Alliance.

The party is looking to address the matter in parliament and has already written to the speaker.
