S.African court clears Ramaphosa of misleading parliament, money-laundering

JOHANNESBURG, March 10 (Reuters) - South Africa’s High Court on Tuesday cleared President Cyril Ramaphosa of lying to parliament about the source of donations to his 2017 campaign to lead the ruling party, setting aside a potentially damaging report by an anti-graft watchdog.

Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane alleged in July that Ramaphosa had deliberately misled parliament about the 500,000 rand ($32,500) donation for his campaign to succeed Jacob Zuma as head of the ruling African National Congress (ANC). (Reporting by Mfuneko Toyana; Editing by Angus MacSwan)
