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
