Shivambu accuses Ramaphosa of intimidating Bosasa witnesses

- | 4 months ago

Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) deputy president Floyd Shivambu has accused President Cyril Ramaphosa of using underhanded tactics in the ongoing investigation into the R500,000 campaign donation he received from Bosasa.

According to Shivambu, Ramaphosa has resorted to “intimidatory tactics” against witnesses in the case and Shivambu believes he should man up and face the music instead of intimidating people. “If the public protector says it is allowed to cross-examine complainants, I will comply and raise concerns in the cross-examination that such sets a wrong precedent,” said Shivambu in an interview with The Star.

Shivambu is one of the complainants in the matter alongside DA leader Mmusi Maimane who recently received a letter from Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane informing him that Ramaphosa would like to interview him as part of his request to cross-examine some of the people Mkhwebane had interviewed during her investigation into the donation.
