Ramaphosa granted interim interdict in Bosasa battle

The high court in Pretoria has granted President Cyril Ramaphosa an interim interdict to halt Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s remedial action against him in the CR17 funding matter.


The order was handed down in a matter of minutes by Judge Peter Mabuze on Monday, as Mkhwebane did not oppose the application.

"The first respondent is interdicted from enforcing the remedial orders, pending the final determination of part B of the application," Mabuze ruled.

The report, released by the last Mkhwebane last month, found that President Ramaphosa had deliberately misled Parliament on a donation from Bosasa for his CR17 campaign.

When confronted about the issue initially in Parliament, Ramaphosa told the house that it was a donation meant for his son Andile.

Part of the Mkwebane’s remedial action ordered National Assembly Speaker Thandi Modise to demand that Ramaphosa disclose all the donations.

She also ordered the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) to investigate possible money laundering.
