President Ramaphosa in Hot Water Over R500,000 Donation?

South Africa's Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has reportedly confirmed in a letter to Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane that President Cyril Ramaphosa is implicated in her investigation into the R500,000 (U.S.$34,000) donation from Bosasa chief Gavin Watson. Ramaphosa said in a previous statement that the payment in question was actually a contribution that had been made to his ANC presidential campaign, of which he had previously been unaware.
