23rd August 2019, 05:40 GMT+10While the debate about campaign funding is important, there's a "sinister agenda to undermine the positive changes" since he has become ANC president by leaking some of the funding information of his campaign to become his party's leader, President Cyril Ramaphosa told the National Assembly.

Responding to a question posed by EFF leader Julius Malema, Ramaphosa did not divulge further information on the "sinister agenda". In his original question, Malema asked for the details of the funders he met at the various fundraising dinners held for the then-deputy president and his 2017 campaign for the ANC presidency.
