The DA made a formal application to see the business contract that was allegedly signed between Bosasa and President Ramaphosa's son, Andile.

The Special Investigative Unit (SUI) found that Watson and Bosasa had bribed high-ranking officials at the Department of Correctional Services for tenders.

Mmusi Maimane, the DA's leader, stated that he submitted two applications, one to the Presidency, and one to Bosasa, now known as African Global Group.
Maimane wants access to the contract signed by Andile Ramaphosa for services rendered.
Maimane explained that he confronted the president with evidence that R500 000 was paid to the CEO of Bosas, Gavin Watson. Andile maid the alleged payment.
The President confirmed that the payment was made, but said it was for legitimate consulting services.
