Cyril not to blame for his son’s deal­ings

Sunday World - - Viewpoint -

Bosasa is the com­pany that runs “semi-prisons” where il­le­gal im­mi­grants are kept un­til they are ei­ther re­turned home or re­main in SA af­ter their sta­tus of res­i­dence is cleared.

In­side the in­sti­tu­tions the ma­jor­ity of the de­tained il­le­gal im­mi­grants are from west African states, then the rest are from Asia. But the ma­jor­ity are African.

Pres­i­dent Cyril Ramaphosa al­legedly claimed that his son, Andile Ramaphosa, “owned a le­git­i­mate con­sul­tancy com­pany that pro­vided ser­vices to Bosasa and had asked his son about the pay­ment” from Bosasa.

The of­fi­cers of the State Se­cu­rity Agency were sup­posed to be the first to brief the pres­i­dent about his son run­ning a busi­ness at Lin­dela.

Now it is sur­pris­ing when we learn that Ramaphosa was not briefed by the agency that they have a con­tract with his son.
