President Cyril Ramaphosa is not about to put the controversy surrounding his family's ties to BOSASA behind him any time soon.

According to IOL, both COSATU and the United Democratic Movement have demanded that the president should hand his son Andile over to police.

Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Andile Ramaphosa had entered into a lucrative R2 million deal with the disgraced company to proved advisory services.

Cosatu is apparently tired of the children of senior officials having access to business opportunities simply because they have high-ranking parents:

“The ANC has created a culture of prince-lings. The ANC has to arrest that culture. This matter was raised with President Ramaphosa."

Bantu Holomisa, UDM leader, said that Andile's confession had not taken him by surprise:

“I think the whole thing is rehearsed. At the beginning, he (Andile) denied he was doing business with Bosasa. It looks like a cooked up statement,”

Holomisa feels it is now up to Ramaphosa to clean up the aftermath and to hand his child over to law enforcement as he had promised in Parliament.
