Delays to President Cyril Ramaphosa’s appearance before the ANC integrity commission have sparked debate, with some calling for him to address the nation about his Phala Phala farm burglary.
The Sunday Times reported Ramaphosa failed to appear last week, leading to the party’ national executive committee meeting (NEC) resolving that he appear before the commission “as a matter of urgency”.
Ramaphosa missed his initial meeting because he was attending the Southern African Customs Union (Sacu) summit in Gaborone, Botswana.
“We did not discuss it at length because the NEC agreed the president has to appear as a matter of urgency. He had to attend the Sacu summit in Botswana. He definitely wants to appear so he can get this matter over and done with because we have to go to conference. Of course he is seeking a second term and he is going to get it,” said an NEC insider.
