Opposition parties urge President Cyril Ramaphosa to come clean on Bosasa

Members of opposition parties in Parliament are calling on President Cyril Ramaphosa to come clean on his Bosasa dealings.

Debating on the State of the Nation Address in Parliament, opposition parties criticised Ramaphosa's speech as uninspiring while calling for an investigation into his Bosasa dealings.

Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane is also probing allegations of money laundering concerning the R500,000 donation paid to Ramaphosa’s African National Congress presidential campaign.

Joanne Joseph speaks to Eyewitness News parliamentary correspondent Babalo Ndenze on the proceedings.

The opposition parties' main appeal on this matter is that he should come clean and take Parliament and MPs into his confidence.

One of the suggestions from Mmusi Maimane is that he should bring this into a parliamentary ad-hoc committee to look into this matter.
