A parliamentary committee charged with examining a scandal affecting South African President Cyril Ramaphosa ruled in its report delivered on Wednesday that there was enough material to debate in Parliament about his possible dismissal.

In light of all the information presented to the Commission, the report concludes that, at first glance, this information indicates that the President may have committed transgressions and errors.

Congress called a special session on Tuesday to consider the report, where He is not obliged to follow the recommendations of his three-member parliamentary committee, including the former President of the Constitutional Court.

In September, Congress ordered the independent commission to investigate a scandal over mysterious amounts of cash hidden in the furniture of the Ramaphosa mansion.

The Council’s presidency responded immediately to the committee’s announcement of its conclusions that evening, stressing that the National Assembly “must consider the report and decide on the most appropriate course of action.”
