President Ramaphosa refuses to answer Parliamentary Question, says Maimane

Demo­c­ra­t­ic Alliance (DA) Leader Mmusi Maimane has described Pres­i­dent Cyril Ramaphosa’s answer to his Par­lia­men­tary Oral Ques­tion as disin­gen­u­ous and def­i­nite­ly not true.

On Thursday’s Oral Ques­tion Ses­sion in Par­lia­ment, said Maimane, I asked Pres­i­dent  Ramaphosa to come clean and dis­close the mon­ey Bosasa paid his son, Andile Ramaphosa, for “strate­gic and finan­cial advi­so­ry offer­ings” as it appears in the agree­ment which the Pres­i­dent stat­ed he had seen.

The Pres­i­dent flat­ly refused to answer my ques­tion, declar­ing that the Pub­lic Pro­tec­tor, Advo­cate Busisi­we Mkhwe­bane is con­sid­er­ing the mat­ter.

“This is disin­gen­u­ous and def­i­nite­ly no true,” said Maimane,

Maimane said the Pres­i­dent is account­able to Par­lia­ment, not the Pub­lic Pro­tec­tor.

His refusal to dis­close the infor­ma­tiom shows there’s some­thing seri­ous to hide between both him­self, his son and Bosasa.

“They com­pro­mised Pres­i­dent Ramaphosa on the Bosasa sub­ject. He got R500 000 “dona­tion” from a com­pa­ny that has been pay­ing the African Nation­al Con­gress (ANC) bribes to secure gov­ern­ment ten­ders for almost two decades,” stat­ed Maimane.

Maimane alleges Bosasa win over ANC offi­cials, includ­ing Pres­i­dent Ramaphosa with cash, and in turn, the gov­ern­ment offers the com­pa­ny lucra­tive ten­ders worth bil­lions of rands.

It is this cor­rupt rela­tion­ship that also leads to indi­vid­u­als just like the President’s son, Andile Ramaphosa, strik­ing mul­ti­mil­lion-rand busi­ness deals with Bosasa.

“Ramaphosa and his son are not the only indi­vid­u­als to have ben­e­fit­ed from Bosasa,” added Maimane.

Maimane stat­ed a long list­ing of ANC min­is­ters have gained sub­stan­tial secu­ri­ty upgrades like CCTV cam­eras, alarm sys­tems and elec­tric fenc­ing free of charge from Bosasa

The list includes Gwede Man­tashe, Nomvu­la Mokonyane, Tha­bang Mak­wet­la, Dudu Myeni, Lin­da Mti, Mbule­lo Ging­cana, and Vin­cent Smith.

The com­pa­ny also alleged­ly fund­ed for­mer Pres­i­dent Jacob Zuma’s birth­day bash­es in 2015 and 2016, to the tune of R3, 5 mil­lion.

“It is the entire ANC that is cor­rupt, not just Jacob Zuma, the Gup­tas and his asso­ciates,” added Maimane
