Twitter was scathing in its response to Independent Media’s story “How CR17’s R1bn was spent” which detailed those who had contributed to President Cyril Ramaphosa’s campaign to become president of the ANC at the party’s elective conference.
The story details how a group of politicians, campaign managers and strategists earned millions for their roles in President Cyril Ramaphosa’s successful ANC presidential campaign.
According to campaign records seen by the Sunday Independent – including emails and financial statements – the beneficiaries of the R1 billion campaign funds included ANC national executive committee (NEC) member Enoch Godongwana, Ramaphosa’s adviser Marion Sparg, Small Business Development Minister Khumbudzo Ntshavheni, Deputy Minister in the Presidency Thembi Siweya, former Free State economic development MEC Mxolisi Dukwana, former DA politician Grant Pascoe, Cosatu and the Western Cape ANC, among others.
