Johannesburg - DA leader Mmusi Maimane is threatening legal action against facilities company, Bosasa, for its alleged failure to reveal whether it has business dealings with President Cyril Ramaphosa’s son, Andile.
Maimane’s threats came after Bosasa, now known as African Global, responded to the opposition party’s PAIA application in which Maimane wanted to know the contents of the contracts Bosasa had with Andile Ramaphosa. Maimane made the PAIA application on November 8 and he got the response on Thursday last week.
In his response, African Global chairperson John Gumede wrote “there exists no record that fits the description “contract and invoice of R500 000 financial consulting services provided by the President’s son Andile Ramaphosa to Bosasa (now African Global Operations).
In his application, Maimane asked Bosasa to verify Ramaphosa’s remarks in Parliament in which he said Andile “actually showed me a contract that he signed with Bosasa and the contract deals with issues of integrity, issues of anti-corruption, and all that”.
Last month, Ramaphosa surprisingly backtracked on his reply in Parliament that the R500000 was for a business service. Ramaphosa said the money was for his campaign conducted last year when he was contesting to be ANC president. However, he said this was done without his knowledge by Andile.
