He has two sisters and one-half sister, Tulisa from his fathers first marriage.

His other brother is Tumelo. Tumelo is based In San Francisco, California. Some of his pictures on social media caused a frenzy from females as he is considered an eligible bachelor.

The Ramaphosa family is a truly diverse one. They were also raised well by their parents, with a strict foundation to ensure that they are able to fend for themselves.
Andile Ramaphosa wife
His wife is a beautiful Ugandan lady called Bridget Birungi. She is the daughter of the former Ugandan Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi. She is well educated because she has a Masters degree in engineering.
Their love story seems straight out of a fairy tale. They met about ten years before the date of their wedding, which took place on the 4th of August 2018 and was also a traditional wedding to represent their roots and cultures. Their wedding trended in both South Africa and Uganda, and it was the ceremony of the year.
As it can be seen below, the president of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni, graced the occasion.
In Beijing, there was a social gathering, and it just happened that they were both there at the same time. Andile was there conducting business while Briget had gone to China for her undergraduate studies.
At the function, one of Bridget's friends had talked to Andile before she did and then encouraged her to speak with him. They hit it off almost immediately. It turned out they had the same interests and likes even before she knew that he was the son of such a prominent man in South Africa.
Above we can see the president of South Africa, Cyril with his son to be daughter-in-law, Bridget.
Soon after she joined him in South Africa, and they had a beautiful daughter, Ainebyona.
Andile Ramaphosa scandals
In March, Andile was caught up in a scandal that brought a lot of trouble for him and his father. It was revealed by News 24 that he was in connection with Bosasa, now renamed African Global Operations.
He had received a lump sum from the company amounting to about R2million. The money is allegedly related to advisory work on more than 20 state and private contracts in other African countries, namely Kenya and Uganda.
His company Blue Crane Capital received the money. From his part of the story, he claims to be taken advantage of and that he was very naïve at that time.
The Bosasa deal was signed just as Cyril assumed the presidency and this also raised some red flags. However, his campaign managers were swift enough to return the money when they realised they had no idea where it came from.
The president was also harsh on his son. Saying that if his child is involved with this matter and found guilty, he will help in the process of bringing him to justice.
