The DA has challenged the ANC to pay back the money it received from Bosasa.

This follows the Zondo Commission revelations that Bosasa was involved in extensive bribery and corruption.

The company allegedly received more than R40 million in taxpayers' money.

The DA's Solly Malatsi insists that those involved in Bosasa's shady dealings should not be allowed to go unpunished. Malatsi also slammed the party for continuing to accept funds from Bosasa, even after officials were aware of the company's illegal activities. 

The ANC's Zweli Mkhize has confirmed that the ANC did in fact receive funds from Bosasa after its crimes had come to light, according to The Citizen.

Bosasa funded several ANC rallies and other party functions in 2014 in the lead-up the national elections. 

Bosasa also used money received from the state to fund ANC campaigns. The most notable of these is the dubious R500 000 paid by Bosasa CEO Gavin Watson to Cyril Ramaphosa's campaign.

Malatsi went so far as to accuse the ANC itself of being a corrupt organization, not just its former leader Jacob Zuma. 

The DA spokesperson ended off by calling on the ANC to hand back all of the public funds it had given to Bosasa.
