Release Bosassa-Ramaphosa “scandal” report, says DA

The Demo­c­ra­t­ic Alliance (DA) is demand­ing the release of the Pub­lic Protector’s report on Pres­i­dent Cyril Ramaphosa relat­ing to alleged Bosasa scan­dal.

“The report is 6 months over­due, release it imme­di­ate­ly,” the oppo­si­tion par­ty said.

Dai­ly Mav­er­ick report­ed on Mon­day some­one leaked the report to the Sun­day Inde­pen­dent con­tain­ing infor­ma­tion on a pay­ment made by Bosasa’s Chief Exec­u­tive Offi­cer (CEO) Gavin Wat­son.

In a state­ment on Mon­day, DA Leader Mmusi Maimane demand Advo­cate Busisi­we Mkhwe­bane release report with­in 48 hours

“Today I will write to the Pub­lic Pro­tec­tor, Advo­cate Mkhwe­bane, request­ing her to release the full unredact­ed report with­in the next 48 hours,” said Maimane.

Over 6 months ago, Pres­i­dent Ramaphosa mis­led Par­lia­ment about the R500 000 “dona­tion” from Wat­son and clear con­flict of inter­est that exists between him, his son, Andile Ramaphosa and Bosasa.

Maimane said he sub­mit­ted a com­plaint to the Pub­lic Pro­tec­tor on Novem­ber 23, 2018, about the Pres­i­dent mis­lead­ing par­lia­ment.

This relates to a con­flict of inter­est in the rela­tion­ship between the Pres­i­dent, his son and Bossa.

The Pub­lic Pro­tec­tor must inves­ti­gate an alleged breach of the code of ethics by a mem­ber of the Nation­al Assem­bly.

Advo­cate Mkhwe­bane was sup­posed to sub­mit a report with­in 30 days of receipt of the com­plaint.

“The report is almost 6 months over­due leav­ing her with no choice but to act at once and release the report in the public’s inter­est,” said Maimane.

Maimane said the imme­di­ate release of this report will leave no room for fur­ther leaks and spec­u­la­tion.

It will allow the pub­lic and Par­lia­ment to hold Pres­i­dent Ramaphosa to account for his actions.

“It is high-time that Pres­i­dents and their fam­i­lies’ who mis­lead Par­lia­ment are treat­ed as equal before and held to account to the fullest might of the law” added Maimane.
