Ramaphosa Admitted Receiving Donations, But These Donations Were Not Paid To His Account

In the wake of the disciplinary actions that some ANC leaders are trying to perpetuate on president Cyril Ramaphosa, the president through a video declared that he indeed received funds from donors. He, however, stated that these donations were never directly paid to him or paid into his bank account, but that people were in charge and these monies were donated through those people. He categorically made it care in the video that nothing that his campaign organization did that was not recorded. Furthermore, he implied that all the preceding were recorded, the monies and what they were donated for were specified in the different records regarding the campaigns. President Cyril Ramaphosa further made it clear that he was not directly in charge of anything, disclosing that people were appointed to head various units and those donations were made through those people in those subunits.

President Cyril Ramaphosa who went to court to seal the controversial CR17 bank statements is under fire as some aggrieved ANC members insist that president Cyril Ramaphosa must be disciplined for sealing his CR17 bank statements. They noted that if nothing was inside, as he is claiming, he would not have hurriedly gone to court to have it permanently sealed. Furthermore, the aggrieved members of the ruling party insist that president Cyril Ramaphosa has to pass through disciplinary measures because no one is above the law, saying that no one person is bigger than the whole ANC. Additionally, they said that president Cyril Ramaphosa used his office to influence the sealing of the sealing of the controversial bank statements. Many people believe that some people who funded the campaign of President Cyril Ramaphosa are directly or indirectly benefiting from tenders and government contracts. They said that if President Cyril Ramaphosa want to come clean and be fully transparent, he would not hesitate to open the sealed bank statements.

Many people have tried to unseal the CR17 bank statements unsuccessfully, including the opposition politician and the founder of the Economic Freedom Fighters political party, Julius Malema. Some people have dragged president Cyril Ramaphosa to court on numerous occasions to unseal the bank statements,, but there are still no headway. Those who approached the court on the matter are usually disappointed by the outcome. Some concluded that no one can actually win president Cyril Ramaphosa in South Africa as a whole.
