JOHANNESBURG - Opposition parties are calling for a probe, following President Cyril Ramaphosa's retraction of his explanation of the Bosasa payment to his son.

Ramaphosa now says the payment was, in fact, a donation to his presidential campaign.

Bosasa CEO Gavin Watson paid the money into a trust account.

Ramaphosa says the donation was made without his knowledge.

In a Q and A session in Parliament earlier, Ramaphosa had said his son had done consultancy work for the security firm.
