Johannesburg - DA leader Mmusi Maimane has requested access to the contract between President Cyril Ramaphosa's son, Andile, and controversial facilities management company Bosasa.
Earlier this week, Ramaphosa confirmed that his son received R500 000 from Bosasa but denied that the payment was for dubious dealings and said he had questioned him about the payment.
Maimane in a statement on Sunday said he had submitted two separate Promotion of Access to Information Act requests (PAIA).
"I have today submitted two separate applications in terms of the Promotion of Access to Information Act (PAIA) – one to the Presidency and one to the African Global Group, formerly Bosasa – to gain access to the contract for services rendered Andile to the controversial facilities management company.
"This is to ensure that Andile has not received any preferential treatment – including alleged kickbacks – by virtue of him being the son of the president."
