President Cyril Ramaphosa has submitted an affidavit to the commission of inquiry into state capture explaining whether he has had relations with the Guptas or Bosasa.

Deputy Justice Raymond Zondo‚ speaking on Friday‚ said that Ramaphosa has requested that the commission make the contents of the affidavit public.

"I thought that as president‚ he should be the first to give the commission his own affidavit .… The president accepted that this was necessary … He also undertook to encourage cabinet ministers that when they are approached by the commission in this regard‚ they should cooperate‚" said Zondo.

He added that Ramaphosa had submitted his affidavit in early July.

This is a developing story.
