Ramaphosa must appoint independent inquiry into Bosasa: Maimane

JOHANNESBURG – Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane is writing to President Cyril Ramaphosa to ask for an independent inquiry into the Bosasa scandal.

The ANC says Ramaphosa has called for an investigation into the company's donations to his presidential campaign and that the president will pay back the money donated made without his knowledge.

Ramaphosa has backtracked on his Parliamentary reply that Bosasa paid his son 500, 000 for consultancy services.

“There can’t be double standards. President Ramaphosa has appointed independent inquiries to investigate corruption elsewhere,” Maimane said.

“Now the same standard must apply to him and his family.

“He must appoint an independent inquiry to investigate Bosasa’s enormous and likely corrupt influence on the government and the ANC.

“This Inquiry should also determine whether the President lied to Parliament when he answered my question in the House about this payment.”
