Banking group Absa has denied that it refused to cooperate with Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane with regards to her investigation into President Cyril Ramaphosa.

Mkhwebane found that President Ramaphosa had misled Parliament about the Bosasa donation of R500 000 for his ANC presidential campaign in 2017.

She has called on the NPA to probe the matter as well as Parliament’s ethics committee to look into the issue.

However, Ramaphosa says the Public Protector has made errors in fact and in law.

He released his 88-page response to her June preliminary report, in which he says Mkhwebane largely ignored in compiling her final report.


Mkhwebane has said her office had subpoenaed Absa to provide bank account information relating to her investigation into the president.

However, Absa denied receiving any such subpoena.
