South Africa president’s son paid by scandal company

South Africa President Cyril Ramaphosa’s son Andile has admitted that he was paid $140,000 by a company facing extensive corruption allegations, an admission that could embarrass his father ahead of polls.

President Ramaphosa has sought, ahead of elections on May 8, to de-toxify the ruling African National Congress which has been embroiled in numerous graft scandals since coming to power in 1994.

The scandal company Bosasa, which is now African global operations, was a conglomerate involved in bidding for and running lucrative government contracts.

Several suspects including the company’s former chief operating Officer Angelo Agrizzi appeared at the specialized commercial crimes court over the alleged theft of $120 million from contracts with the prisons service.

There is no suggestion Andile Ramaphosa or his company was involved in the alleged corruption at the centre of the ongoing criminal case.
