The DA's Mmusi Maimane has demanded that Cyril Ramaphosa reveal all the details of his son Andile's deal with Bosasa.

This follows a dubious payment of R500 000 that Bosasa made to Andile Ramaphosa. 

The DA says that the relationship is suspicious, and has given Andile 21 days in which to reply and explain himself, according to reports from The South African.

This follows the DA's announcement that their legal team is seeking to interdict documents regarding Bosasa and Andile's agreement, according to The Citizen.

The party also slammed Ramaphosa for not taking action against Bosasa, such as by ending government contracts with the company or to order audits of all Bosasa deals.

They have asked that Ramaphosa tell the public the truth, even if it will have negative consequences for his family members.

The situation is especially problematic for Ramaphosa, because he has campaigned on rooting out government corruption and claimed to be reforming the ANC from its state capture ways.

Ramaphosa had previously said that the money stemmed from contracts between his son and Bosasa. However, he later changed his tune and said that the money was part of a campaign donation.

He also says that his campaign tried unsuccessfully to give the money back.
