[WATCH] Here's the purported ANC letter Maimane revealed during Ramaphosa's Q&A
Mmusi Maimane whipped out a letter which seemed to catch the president off guard during his Q&A session in Parliament on Thursday.
The 2014 letter typed on an ANC letterhead is signed by the Treasurer General Zweli Mkhize and thanks Bosasa's Gavin Watson for a 3 million party donation.

Ramaphosa seemingly took it in his stride and asked that he be given time to study the letter and would get back to the DA leader after he had done so.

The President must respond to Parliament within 14 days.
