President Cyril Ramaphosa previously said he was ready to appear before the Zondo commission. Now is the time, writes Ralph Mathekga, if the commission's integrity is to remain intact.

President Cyril Ramaphosa is not having a good start to the year as the president of the ANC, after former Eskom chief Brian Molefe implicated him last Friday at the state capture commission of inquiry.
