Founder and editor-in-chief of the Daily Maverick Branko Brkic insists the online publication never received any money from President Cyril Ramaphosa’s CR17 campaign and it is not connected in any way to Maverick State, a company named in a Sunday Independent report over the weekend as having received R300,000 as part of a group of “politicians, campaign managers and strategists” who “earned millions” for their role in the campaign.

This follows Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) national spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi taking to Twitter to ask the publication if any such connection existed. “It’s so ridiculous that I’m surprised you actually don’t do a CIPC search rather than following the EFF’s trolling,” Brkic said.

“This is such an obvious lie that someone should be able to see it from 10,000 metres,” he added.
