Cape Town - Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane on Tuesday said the chairman of African Global Operations, the company formerly known as Bosasa, has told him in writing that it has asked President Cyril Ramaphosa's son, Andile, for permission to publish the contracts it holds with two of his companies.
Maimane said Joe Gumede signalled readiness to disclose the contracts between the company and Blue Crane and Offtake.
The DA has filed an application in terms of the Promotion of Access to Information Act (PAIA) to see these contracts.
Maimane quotes Gumede as saying in a letter to him: “We have accordingly afforded Blue Crane Pty Ltd and Offtake Pty Ltd 21 days from today’s date to give written consent that we may disclose the documents requested, alternatively, to make written or oral representations to us giving us reasons why they believe the documents requested should not be disclosed.”
Maimane urged Andile Ramaphosa to disclose the agreements.
