DA leader Mmusi Maimane wants an urgent question relating to President Cyril Ramaphosa's ANC presidency campaign funding to be added to the questions for Thursday's hotly anticipated question and answer session in the National Assembly.
On Wednesday, Maimane wrote to National Assembly speaker Thandi Modise to ask her to add the question in terms of the rules that allow urgent questions. The question is: "Whether the appointments of Ms K P S Ntshavheni to the position of Minister of Small Business Development, Ms R T Siweya to the position of Deputy Minister in the Presidency, Mr F Mbalula to the position of Minister of Transport and Mr Z Kodwa to the position of Deputy Minister of State Security were informed in any way by the fact that both worked for, and received payment from his CR17 campaign?"This, after leaked information related to Ramaphosa's campaign funding revealed that the ministers and deputy ministers reportedly received payment from the campaign.
In his letter to Modise, Maimane wrote: "This news broke in the Sunday Independent and City Press on Sunday 18 August while the deadline for written questions submission was yesterday 20 August at 12h00.
