South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has held the Constitutional Court to have a parliamentary report overturned which overwhelms him on a corruption scandal which has bothered him for months and whose conclusions have paved the way for impeachment proceedings.

The head of state claims, in a document submitted to the supreme court and of which AFP had a copy on Monday, that the report submitted to Parliament on Wednesday be “reviewed, declared illegal and not taken into account”. Mr Ramaphosa, 70, is accused of trying to cover up a burglary in which large sums of cash were found at one of his properties in 2020, by not reporting it to the police or to the taxation.
