WATCH: Ramaphosa misled Parliament on Bosasa donation: Mkhwebane

Busisiwe Mkhwebane found he deliberately misled Parliament about money he received from Bosasa for his ANC presidential campaign.

Mkhwebane says Parliament's ethics committee should decide on a sanction for the President. But, he's not an MP.

According to leader Mmusi Maimane Ramaphosa must subject himself to an ad hoc committee that will sit in Parliament, so that he can be subpoenaed

"We continue our call that President Cyril Ramaphosa must subject himself to an ad hoc committee that will sit in Parliament, so that he can be subpoenaed."

"That committee will have powers to subpoena, so that he actually appears before it and give evidence so that parliament can determine what the appropriate sanction for the president is."
