Public Protector awaits Ramaphosa’s response regarding Bosasa donation

President Cyril Ramaphosa has been given 10 days to respond to questions posed by the Public Protector before being implicated in his dealings with the controversial facilities management company, Bosasa.

IOL reported that the Public Protector, Busisiwe Mkhwebane told Talk Radio 702 that a section 7 (9) notice has been issued to Ramaphosa regarding the donation from Bosasa boss, Gavin Watson.

Questions began arising a few months ago when DA leader, Mmusi Maimane questioned Ramaphosa about the R500,000 received from Bosasa for his presidential campaign in the run-up to the ANC’s national elective conference.

Ramaphosa said that his son, Andile had business dealings with Bosasa but later submitted a written response to then Speaker Baleka Mbete that a donation had been made to his election campaign.

He has also stated that the funds were in a trust account awaiting return to Bosasa but pending the finalisation of the matter.
