Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhebane found in her inquiry report that the payment of R500,000 to Ramaphose by Bosasa, was wrongful and that the president is guilty of violating the code of ethics for executive members . Ramaphosa argued the money was deposited into a trust account for services rendered by his son, Andile.
Mkhebane, released her report at a news conference in Pretoria, and revealed that Ramaphosa lied to parliament about the payout. Netwerk 24 reports that Mmusi Maimane, DA leader, asked Ramaphosa a question on payment on parliament on 6 November 2018. He said the money was paid to his son, but he later changed his story.
The question that arise is: What will happen now that President Cyril Ramaphosa is caught out lying ?
