- During yesterday's Q&A session, President Cyril Ramaphosa was hard-pressed over his controversial CR17 campaign
- EFF leader Julius Malema recently found himself two MPs short thanks to Ramaphosa
- The Red Berets boss wanted to know how many of his members received money from the president
Economic Freedom Fighter leader Julius Malema has asked President Cyril Ramaphosa exactly how many of his members benefited from him financially.
During a recent Q&A session, Malema touched on the hotly-debated controversy surrounding the president's CR17 campaign, but took a more light-hearted approach to the situation than DA leader Mmusi Maimane.
Malema's question managed to garner a cheerful response when he asked Ramaphosa:
"This one, the last question you will answer me outside; how many of my members did you give money?"
Briefly.co.za reported that Ramaphosa had told Parliament that the two EFF MPs who recently resigned amid the revelation they benefited financially from the president that he had helped out because of the 'humanity' within him.
Mmusi Maimane had taken a far more aggressive stance on the topic, demanding answers about a letter dated 2014, which allegedly revealed a R3 million donation from the infamous BOSASA group.
