Constitutional law expert, Shadrack Gutto, says Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s latest report on President Cyril Ramaphosa should be welcomed as the Constitution requires transparency, accountability and openness.
The presidency says President Cyril Ramaphosa will study Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s report and decide on any further decisions, after the report made adverse findings against him over a R500 000 campaign donation from Bosasa.
President Cyril Ramaphosa’s office says it is unfortunate that Public Protector, Busisiwe Mkhwebane, has failed to properly consider his submissions regarding the Bosasa donation to his presidential campaign.
Public Protector, Busisiwe Mkhwebane, has found that President Cyril Ramaphosa was in breach of the executive code of ethics and misled Parliament in relation to a 2017 Bosasa donation.
The case against former Bosasa executives and former Correctional Services officials has been postponed to October 24 in the Pretoria Specialised Commercial Crimes Court.
