- The ATM party has opened a case of corruption against Cyril Ramaphosa
- The party wants the Hawks to look into the president's CR17 campaign
- They say they have handed over evidence to the crime-fighting unit
The African Transformation Movement (ATM) has called on the Hawks to investigate Cyril Ramaphosa's CR17 campaign.
ATM President Vuyolwethu Zungula says they have approached the crime-fighting unit with the Public Protector's report as well as the bank statements linked to the campaign.
The party has also opened a case of money laundering and corruption against the president.
The documents the ATM has brought to the Hawks include some of the information that was sealed by Judge Ledwaba when he ruled in favour of Ramaphosa.
Now, Zungula wants an investigation done into the funders who donated money to Ramaphosa's campaign, according to IOL. This comes after Ramaphosa approached the courts to have the Public Protector's report against him set aside, Briefly.co.za has gathered.
"We want the Hawks to investigate the matter to assist the court to arrive at a final determination of the matter," Zungula said.
This is not the first time Zungula has sided with the Public Protector against the president, Jacaranda FM has reported. Previously, Zungula had donated an unknown amount of money to Busisiwe Mkhwebane to help her pay her legal costs. This was after the Constitutional Court held the Public Protector responsible for R900 000 in costs.
