The High Court in Pretoria has set aside Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s report into the CR17 presidential election campaign in 2017.

It also found President Cyril Ramaphosa did not deliberately mislead parliament about a R500,000 Bosasa donation to his CR17 campaign. In November 2018, Ramaphosa was questioned by then DA leader Mmusi Maimane in the National Assembly over a R500,000 payment ostensibly made to his son, Andile, by the now late Bosasa CEO, Gavin Watson.

Ramaphosa responded that he was aware of the payment and that it was all above board and part of Andile’s consultancy agreement with the Krugersdorp company, which has been mired in controversy over allegations of bribery and corruption for more than a decade.
