In an answering affidavit, the public protector accuses the president of obfuscating and being part of a “grand stratagem” to have her removed.

and went even further, detailing transfers of millions of rands between the CR17 campaign’s various bank accounts. She said there was “merit” in a suspicion of money laundering and that “such a scenario, when looked at carefully, creates a situation of the risk of some sort of state capture by those donating these moneys to the campaign”.After the litigation began it emerged that Mkhwebane relied on certain emails.

In his court papers, the president raised concerns about the provenance of the emails, asking for their metadata. In answer, Mkhwebane said: “I receive many documents from anonymous whistleblowers. These emails were provided to my office anonymously and in hard copies. It is for that reason that I have no metadata in respect thereof.”

She added that it was “naive and/or misleading” to contend that the CR17 campaign was to fund the ANC, and not to benefit Ramaphosa. “I could not turn a blind eye as the president suggests I do. To suggest that when the relevant authority is investigating one transgression, it should ignore other transgressions it comes across in the process of its investigation is not a contention that should be made by a head of state.”
