JOHANNESBURG: Opposition parties are piling pressure on President Cyril Ramaphosa to come clean on the funding he received from controversial facilities management company Bosasa for his presidential candidacy in the ANC.

This happens as the former CR17 campaign management team on Sunday said they would audit money raised for his candidacy and return R500000 made on behalf of Bosasa’s Gavin Watson.

Ramaphosa wrote to National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete on Friday clarifying his previous response to a parliamentary question from DA leader Mmusi Maimane, who asked him about a payment made to his son Andile.

He had told the National Assembly that Andile’s company had a contract with African Global Operations, formerly called Bosasa, for consultancy services.

In his letter, Ramaphosa said he had been informed that the payment did not relate to that contract.
