In a letter to Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane, Public Protector Busisiwe Mkwebane confirms that President Cyril Ramaphosa is involved into Bosasa probe.
In her investigations Mkhwebane found that President Ramaphosa received R500 000 donation from Bosasa CEO Gavin Watson.
The Public Protector has confirmed that she served Ramaphosa with a section 7 (9) notice on May 30 to formally notify him that he is implicated in her investigation and was given 10 days to respond to the findings against him.
According to the Mkhwebane’s letter, the President requested an extension until 28 June to respond to the allegations made on the report, but the public protector gave him until June 21 instead.
According to Mkhwebane, the president asked to cross-examine witnesses who are part of this investigation, including Maimane.
“I have requested that President Ramaphosa provide the questions they would want to ask, so that I can determine whether it is justifiable to allow that.”
