DA wants probe into Ramaphosa's Bosasa donation and campaign fund tied to Guptas
DA leader Mmusi Maimane says President Cyril Ramaphosa must institute a full-scale independent inquiry to investigate the Bosasa scandal.
The DA claims that the funds used to support Ramaphosa’s campaign for ANC presidency are linked to a former Trillian Capital director.
The party says a law firm whose director has links to the Gupta family administered Ramaphosa's so-called slush fund, used to raise money for his election campaign.
Ramaphosa revealed earlier this month that R500 000 was paid to a trust fund for his ANC presidential campaign by controversial security company, Bosasa.
The DA says the fund used to raise money for the campaign, including the R500 000 donation, was administered by Jeffrey Afriat.
Afriat had also served as one of three directors of Trillian Capital, the alleged front company used by the Gupta's to capture the state and loot public money.
Maimane says this link is evidence of a system of corruption put together by the ANC.
According to EWN, the Presidency says it’s not yet ready to respond to the allegations.
Maimane also commented on the fallout between Tshwane mayor Solly Msimanga and city manager Moeketsi Mosola.
He says a special council meeting will be held on Thursday to look into the conduct of the city manager regarding the awarding of tender contracts.
