Ramphele reveals personal finances

Agang SA leader, Mamphela Ramphele, has disclosed her net worth of R55m and has urged President Jacob Zuma to do the same. Watch.WATCH

Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma discloses his personal financial details to Cabinet annually, the presidency said.

"Members of the national executive of government submit their disclosures to the secretary of Cabinet who maintains a register," spokesperson Mac Maharaj said in a statement on Wednesday.

"The president therefore submits his disclosure annually to the secretary of Cabinet."

He was responding to a challenge from Agang SA leader Mamphela Ramphele on Wednesday to Zuma to reveal details about his personal wealth.

"I call upon President Zuma to publish his accounts immediately. What is there to hide?" she asked reporters in Johannesburg.

"South Africans deserve a president that sets a good example for the rest of the country to follow."

Maharaj said: "The Constitution of 1996 and the Executive Members Ethics Act, 1998, prescribe the nature, content and form in which members of the Cabinet and the executive councils disclose their financial interests annually."

Ramphele claimed that Zuma had avoided revealing these details.

"President Zuma has used a convenient technicality to side-step this requirement.

"From his inauguration... the president has dodged the issue for over 1 565 days to date. With each passing day suspicion about his integrity mounts," she said.
