Public Protector mum on IOL report on Ramaphosa-Bosasa loan

Public Protector advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane will not comment on a Sunday Independent (IOL) report claiming she found President Cyril Ramaphosa guilty of "inadvertently misleading" Parliament over a R500 000 Bosasa donation, her office tweeted on Sunday.

According to IOL, in a preliminary report submitted to Ramaphosa last Thursday -- which the publication claims to have seen courtesy of one of the president's confidants -- Mkhwebane said the president violated the Constitution and the executive code of ethics.

The IOL story further claims that, last Thursday, Ramaphosa received a draft copy of a report into Mkhwebane's probe into the donation to his election campaign for the presidency of the ANC.

In the tweet, Oupa Segalwe, the public protector's spokesperson, said that the publication claims to have obtained a document leaked by a presidential confidant that is linked to an investigation she is carrying out following complaints against the president by the Democratic Alliance (DA) and the Economic Freedom Fighters.

"Adv. Mkhwebane and her office will not comment on the contents of any news report or leaked document that purports to be hers as that could potentially jeopardise her investigations and prejudice the subjects of the probes," Segalwe said.

According to IOL, Ramaphosa's spokesperson Khusela Diko said on Saturday: "The Presidency respects the office of the protector and remains committed to cooperating fully with the investigation. The Presidency would not wish to comment on any matter relating to the PP's investigation."

The statement did not give clarity on whether or not the document is legitimate.

In November last year, Ramaphosa backtracked on a response he gave before the National Assembly over the payment from Bosasa CEO Gavin Watson, allegedly for the benefit of his son, Andile in respect of a consultancy contract his son's company had signed with Bosasa.
