The story: President Cyril Ramaphosa has admitted he should not have asked for his case before the ANC's integrity commission to be postponed.

In quotes: "I thought at the time this matter was so murky and this matter had become so loaded with many cases and many reports," Ramaphosa said.

The background: In March last year the Gauteng High Court in Pretoria set aside Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane's findings that the CR17 campaign's bank accounts should be made public, saying she had acted unlawfully, recklessly, and without jurisdiction. The matter was taken to the Constitutional Court in November and is awaiting judgment.
