President Cyril Ramaphosa came under pressure in parliament on Tuesday to act against some of the ministers accused of corruption at the state capture inquiry.

DA MP Phumzile van Damme took the opportunity during the state of the nation debate to challenge Ramaphosa to prove his commitment to fighting graft by suspending implicated ministers‚ including Gwede Mantashe and Nomvula Mokonyane.
