JOHANNESBURG - President Cyril Ramaphosa says he will step down should he be charged with corruption.
According to News 24, Ramaphosa made the claim during an interview.
Former Eskom CEO Brian Molefe implicated Ramaphosa at the state capture inquiry on Friday.
Molefe accused the president of a conflict of interest regarding Eskom.
He says Ramaphosa, then deputy president, shouldn't have been appointed chairperson of Eskom's war room, because he was a shareholder at the Glencore mining company that was doing business with the utility.
Molefe also says Ramaphosa is to blame for the current bouts of load-shedding.
