Pravin Gordhan told us to connect the dots when it comes to state capture matters, I have connected the dots and now I am a hypocrite?
What do you call a donation which leads to someone being given a prominent position?
ANC policy? NDR?

Mbalula and Kodwa got payments from CR17 campaign – report

The minister and deputy minister are believed to have received R40K each.

‌A report in City Press alleges that, according to leaked bank statements circulating, Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula and Deputy Minister of State Security Zizi Kodwa both received R40,000 each from President Cyril Ramaphosa’s succesful CR17 campaign for the ANC presidency.

These payments were reportedly made on the same date, as well as one of the same amount to a man called Jama Mchunu.

Kodwa denied receiving any money from the “so-called CR17” while Mbalula declined to comment.

According to The City Press report, there is unhappiness among some of those who were paid to lobby for the campaign after leaked details of how the CR17 funds flowed show a massive discrepancy in the amount paid to some campaigners compared to others.

Ekhurhuleni mayor accuses Ramaphosa of ‘money laundering and tax avoidance’

The mayor, himself accused of corruption, believes the current presidency is going through a ‘looting period’.


Ekhurhuleni mayor Mzwandile Masina took to Twitter on Saturday night to express the view that the presidency of Cyril Ramaphosa is a “looting period” and a disgrace to the legacy of struggle icon Oliver Tambo.

He says reading the “bank statements” which have leaked from Ramaphosa’s successful CR17 campaign for the ANC presidency has led him to this conclusion.

Masina wants the South African Revenue Service (Sars) and National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) to step in over what he claims is “money laundering and tax avoidance” surrounding the campaign.

Journalist Oliver Meth confirms CR17 payments

The journalist says he cannot talk about his work on the campaign due to his signing of a non-disclosure agreement.

‌Journalist Oliver Meth has confirmed via Twitter his receipt of payments from the CR17 campaign which resulted in President Cyril Ramaphosa’s assent to the ANC presidency.

“I’d like to place on record, that I worked as a media consultant on the campaign and was paid for services rendered, as a freelancer,” Meth wrote.

He added that he cannot say more due to having signed a non-disclosure agreement and will not be doing any interviews.

UPDATE: In a tweet, Masina said he would take legal action if The Citizen does not retract its previous headline on this story, “Ekhurhuleni mayor accuses Ramaphosa of ‘money laundering and tax avoidance'”. Masina clarified that he was not referring to Ramaphosa but instead was calling for action to be taken against the “beneficiaries”. We regret the misunderstanding.

EFF says one of its MPs admitted to receiving money from Ramaphosa campaign

EFF Member of Parliament (MP) Tebogo Mokwele has claimed she received R40 000 from the much talked about CR17 campaign, the party confirmed in a statement on Sunday.
"She has since confessed to the EFF leadership and indicated that the money related to a personal problem (bereavement) she had, which President Ramaphosa was assisting with," spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said in a statement on Sunday.
The CR17 campaign was behind Cyril Ramaphosa's bid to become president of the ANC.
The EFF further called on other fighters to come out clean and confess if they have received any money from the campaign.
"Commissar Mokwele's confirmation that she received the money after speaking to President Ramaphosa is a confirmation that Ramaphosa was directly involved in the accounts that were paying money to different recipients in the CR17 campaign.
"The leadership of the EFF will be in discussion as to what course of action to take on Commissar Tebogo Mokwele," said Ndlozi.
City Press detailed on Sunday how ANC MP Bernice Swarts allegedly received R16m from an account linked to the C17 campaign.

People aligned to the other camp must also confess, especially those who went to Nasrec.:)

I wonder why she approached Ramaphosa for help, why didn't she go to the EFF? Call him names in Parliament and later ask for money? Sounds odd...

Apart from CR lying about not knowing any of the details of the donors this story is just throwing mud in hopes it shapes into something. We know these campaigns are dirty, Mkhwebane opened up a can of worms which is probably her intention. Ramaphosa was naive lying to her, he already knew one case of being surveilled illegally and it looks like the puppet may have obtained the records legally in this case. And she probably has plausible deniability on the source of the leaks.

So she just decided to throw some shade at ABSA while she's at it. Crazy *****.
Well, that might have been intended for FNB.

'Comedy of errors' shows Mkhwebane's Absa subpoena intended for FNB

Mail & Guardian investigative editor Thanduxolo Jika has written an article about a series of errors that resulted in Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane serving Absa a subpoena intended for FNB.

The mistake happened during Mkhwebane's investigation into Bosasa’s R500,000 donation to the CR17 African National Congress (ANC) presidential campaign and whether President Cyril Ramaphosa misled Parliament about it.
Jika's article follows Mkhwebane being dealt another legal and financial blow on Thursday when the North Gauteng High Court ordered her to personally pay 7.5% of the legal costs of the Democratic Alliance and the Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution (Casac) in the Estina Dairy Farm matter.

702's Bongani Bingwa spoke to Jika about his exposé and Mkhwebane's consistent legal woes.
"A subpoena was sent to Absa but it was not meant for Absa, it was actually meant for FNB. Both banks alerted Mkhwebane's office that this was the wrong subpoena. Unfortunately for Absa, they sent the response to the wrong email. Mkhwebane's office also tried to email the subpoena to Absa but the office also got the email address wrong," Jika said.

"A subpoena must be sent to a person, a person must sign a receipt for it. From the face of all these errors, how can an Absa subpoena end up with FNB and vice versa? Surely we should have better systems than that. These errors go back to the fact that findings are being made by the courts."

Ramaphosa responds to EFF's CR17 claims
JOHANNESBURG - President Cyril Ramaphosa's spokesperson says she's not sure what convoluted conspiracy the EFF is trying to manufacture. The EFF on Sunday confirmed that MP Tebogo Mokwela received R40,000 from Ramaphosa "related to a bereavement".

Khusela Diko says if someone requested money for a bereavement, as alleged in the statement, how does that prove the president knew about the day-to-day fundraising for his campaign. She says if the EFF's account of what happened is true, all it proves is that the president is a caring and compassionate human being.

Diko further states that Ramaphosa will not give running commentary on each payment made.

Adriaan pretty much nails it on the head really...

CR is hamstrung and can't really fight back and has to rely on Batohi sorting out the NPA and getting people to see the inside of a jail...

The sad part is that people are seemingly buying into the Zupta fightback strategy, I just saw a survey where most participants said government is even more corrupt since Cyril took over.

Of course they are... because they buy into the Social Media bollocks.. and also because by and large people are unaware of how long it takes to fix large scale issues like Jacob caused within our government...
