While it may look like a potential politically bad week for president Cyril Ramaphosa after leaked emails showed that he knew who funded his 2017 ANC presidential campaign, an analyst warns that he will survive.
In the emails first revealed by News24 on Saturday, Ramaphosa allegedly even gave instructions and was kept abreast by his campaign team.
The fundraising campaign reportedly netted over R200 million and has drawn the attention of the Public Protector Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane.
Weighing in on the matter, Durban-based political analyst Xolani Dube of Xubera Institute says the fact that Ramaphosa survived the Marikana scandal, Bosasagate and the revelations that he was allegedly involved in extra marital affairs show that he would come out unscathed in the latest controversy around his campaign.
Dube warned that those celebrating the revelations should hold their horses as Ramaphosa enjoys the support of the ruling elite which tends to have the support of the media.
