  • Some things that have emerged from Ramaphosa's appearance at the state capture commission
  • Roughly more of the same approach from Ramaphosa: denying taking part in illicit activities with the Guptas and spurious Prasa and Eskom coal contracts
  • He reasoned that although he had some awareness of questionable behaviour and thought about resigning, he believed he would do more good by remaining within the party and running for president to root out corruption from within
  • He also said that he pushed back against controversial appointments under Zuma such as at the National Treasury
  • Interestingly, judge Zondo acceded to the DA's demands to disclose minutes of cadre deployment committee meetings. In response, Ramaphosa denies minutes exist - but this contradicts the ANC's court papers in response to our court case. "
  • Ramaphosa ascribed the lack of minutes between 2012-2017 to poor recordkeeping. Said that as a party "on-the-go" the ANC often finds itself unable to record the minutes of each and every meeting.
  • Overall, however, nothing too damning from his testimony other than the cadre deployment minutes which could cause headaches for the ANC and Top 6 but not put Ramaphosa in any major trouble
