Johannesburg - President Cyril Ramaphosa said he was informed that Bosasa executives, CEO Gavin Watson and director Trevor Mathenjwa, travelled to Uganda in August last year to attend his son Andile Ramaphosa's wedding but that he did not recall interacting with them at the event.
More than a thousand guests attended the wedding, the president said in an affidavit submitted to the Zondo commission of inquiry into the state capture scandal.
"This included between 150 and 200 guests who flew from South Africa for the occasion. I have no recollection of any interaction with them at that event."
He said he did tour the company's call centre at its Krugersdorp head office where ANC volunteers were helping the governing party with its campaign ahead of the August 2016 local government elections.
"I remember interacting there with ANC volunteers and party officials but may well have also interacted with Bosasa employees that were present at the premises at the time. I had no knowledge at the time of the source of funding for this centre as these matters were the purview of the [ANC] elections team."
