President Ramaphosa recently infuriated opposition parties when he corrected a statement he made about a payment received by Bosasa.

South Africa's president made a statement in which he admitted that he found out Bosasa made a donation to his 2017 election campaign.

The DA and IFP now want the link between the Ramaphosa family and Bosasa investigated.

News24 reported that Mmusi Maimane, the DA's leader, asked that the relationship between the president's family and Bosasa be investigated soon.

This investigation should cover all payments made to any member of the Ramaphosa family from Bosasa and African Global Operations. It should also cover the business relationship between Bosasa and President Cyril Ramaphosa's son.

Ramaphosa earlier said he would personally hand his son over to the cops if he was corrupt.

Maimane wants the president to come clean on all payments he and his family or his election campaign received from Bosasa.

Maimane said Ramaphosa should "come clean" and disclose all payments received by him, his family, and his campaign from Bosasa.

He claims not to have known about state capture when it was happening right in front of him, and now he claims not to have known about this dodgy payment to his own campaign.

Meanwhile, the IFP also called for an investigation. They want the National Assembly Speaker to look into the president's statement that his campaign received money from Bosasa.

We view this in a very serious light and consider it to be one of the gravest shortcomings of the president so far in his office. We, therefore, call on the Speaker of the National Assembly to consult with relevant Parliamentary committees, including but not limited to the powers and privileges and the ethics committee to consider the relevant course of action.

Briefly.co.za earlier reported that former president, Jacob Zuma, benefited financially from the corruption-accused company.

Bosasa, under the leadership of CEO Gavin Watson, was found guilty of bribery.
