South Africa’s President, Cyril Ramaphosa will not be asked to appear before Parliament’s Standing Committee on Public Accounts to answer questions about the misuse of state funds for political campaigns. Eyewitness News reports that the decision was taken on Wednesday night after African National Congress members of Scopa used their majority to vote down the proposal. Earlier on Wednesday, Ramaphosa told journalists that he was willing to appear before the public spending watchdog if it asked him to.
