Corruption was prevalent in South Africa under Jacob Zuma’s leadership, his successor Cyril Ramaphosa (above) has told an inquiry.

Appearing before a graft inquiry concerning the previous administration, the incumbent president, who served as Zuma’s deputy from 2014 to 2018, explained why he did not resign his position as a result of his party’s alleged misconduct.

Mr Ramaphosa said he chose to “remain but to resist”, claiming his goal of tackling corruption would have been “significantly impaired” if he had vacated his position.

He later won the African National Congress (ANC) leadership contest and helped to remove Zuma from office.
