South African President Cyril Ramaphosa is to repay $35,000 given to his leadership campaign by a firm accused of corruption.
The donor, a firm called bosasa, has won lucrative government contracts but is under investigation.
Answering questions in parliament on 6 November, Mr Ramaphosa said money paid to his son by Bosasa (which is now named african global operations) had been for legitimate business between the company and Andile.
Then, in a written clarification to parliament this week, he said he had been subsequently informed that the payment did not relate to his son but had been paid into a fund used for his leadership campaign.
On Saturday, ANC Spokesman Zizi Kodwa told state media the president had “decided voluntarily that he will pay back the said amount”.
