Pretoria - An urgent application lodged by President Cyril Ramaphosa to have the implementation of remedial action ordered by Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane against him suspended, will be heard in the North Gauteng High Court on Tuesday.
Earlier this month Mkhwebane found that Ramaphosa had deliberately misled parliament about a R500 000 donation from corruption accused Gavin Watson, CEO of Bosasa.
President Cyril Ramaphosa has distanced himself from the Guptas and Bosasa boss Gavin Watson as allegations of state capture unfold at the commission of inquiry into state capture.
Last week, in a detailed affidavit given to Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, who chairs the commission, Ramaphosa admitted meeting the Guptas several times but said the exchanges did not go beyond pleasantries.
“One of them arrived for the meeting and I think it was Tony Gupta. At this meeting held during April 2016, various issues were discussed including the closure of the bank accounts of one of their businesses, Oakbay,” stated Ramaphosa in the affidavit.
