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”.Please subscribe to our newsletter
