| Ramaphosa says he gave EFF MPs money out of generosity

- | 3 months ago

DA chief whip John Steenhuisen said: “Honourable speaker, would the president like to share with the House what his interest rate is?” “That‘s not a point of order,” Speaker Thandi Modise said.

It is unclear whether Ramaphosa answered Steenhuisen. DA leader Mmusi Maimane then asked a follow-up question – similar to the one he unsuccessfully petitioned Modise to add to the order paper as an urgent question.

He said the EFF MPs were not the only ones who had received money, adding four members of the executive – Small Business Development Minister Khumbudzo Ntshavheni, Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula, Deputy Minister of State Security Zizi Kodwa and Deputy Minister in the Presidency Thembi Siweya – also received money from the campaign.
