Mmusi Maimane is adamant that President Cyril Ramaphosa failed to declare his controversial Bosasa donation in his financial interests declaration. The Democratic Alliance leader claims to have seen the declaration and feels that Ramaphosa has misled Cabinet.
Mmusi Maimane is on the war path once again, this time accusing President Cyril Ramaphosa of failing to declare his R500 000 Bosasa donation in his declaration of financial interests for the 2018/19 period.
According to The Sowetan, Maimane has seen the declaration of interests and failed to note the donation at the centre of so much scandal:
"I can confirm that [Ramaphosa] has failed to declare the clear conflict of interest that exists between himself, his son Andile, and the corrupt systems management company Bosasa."
The Executive Ethics Code requires the ANC leader to disclose the details of his financial interests to the secretary of Cabinet once a year.
Maimane now claims that the president misled his own Cabinet, breaching the code in the process:
"I will therefore approach the public protector to formally include this omission by the president in her ongoing investigation into what can only be described as insider trading between Ramaphosa and Bosasa."

Briefly.co.za reported that Andile Ramaphosa, Cyril's son, has admitted to earning R2 million from the infamous company for advisory services.
The Democratic Alliance is now insisting that the countless bribes Bosasa allegedly paid ANC politicians cannot be ignored, likening it to former President Jacob Zuma's son, Duduzane and his 'dodgy business dealings':
"From Bosasa to Eskom loan deals, Andile Ramaphosa is unduly benefiting due to the fact that his father happens to be the president. This is no different to former President Jacob Zuma's son, Duduzane, and his dodgy business dealings that were in part facilitated by his father’s political connections."
