The Public Protector has submitted a record of the evidence she used to finger President Cyril Ramaphosa in her report on his BOSASA debacle.

News24 reports that Mkhwebane's filed evidence included the bank statements of entities involved in raising capital for his CR17 campaign to become the president of the ANC.

Briefly.co.za reported that Ramaphosa's legal team seeks to have certain portions of Mkhwebane's evidence sealed by the court, claiming that they have been 'unlawfully obtained'.

The court granted the president an interdict stalling the Public Protector's remedial action in the matter, also issuing a directive that the evidence submitted should be treated with confidentiality.

The evidence at the centre of so much attention has therefore been confined to the office of deputy judge president, Aubrey Ledwaba.

This will attempt to prevent any further leaks in the high-profile case, with the names of donors to Ramaphosa's campaign stirring up controversy last week.
