As far as I know, DA leader Mmusi Maimane has never revealed how he got the information that President Cyril Ramaphosa's ANC leadership campaign received a R500,000 donation from Bosasa boss Gavin Watson back in 2017.

Perhaps he should. I watched events unfold on Friday: Jacob Zuma pulling out of the Zondo commission of inquiry (and then not) and public protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane finding that Ramaphosa had deliberately misled parliament when, upon being ambushed with the Bosasa question by Maimane, he answered untruthfully, saying the money was for his son.
