Fake invoices and fictitious companies were used by facilities management and security company Bosasa to stock up cash for bribes to corrupt senior government officials, the State capture commission of inquiry heard today.

Former Bosasa chief financial officer Andries van Tonder said CEO Gavin Watson requested a lot of cash from the company's bank account which began to pose regulatory risks for Bosasa. 

He said the company then began using various illegal ways to get the cash, including requesting cash payments for fictitious goods.

 

Parliament's presiding officers don't expect disruptions at Sona

The 2019 State-of-the-nation address by President Cyril Ramaphosa will be the only agenda item during the joint sitting of Parliament on February 7 with strict rules of engagement and parliamentary conventions applying, the national legislature's presiding officers said today.

Briefing the media, National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete and National Council of Provinces chairperson Thandi Modise said preparations for a successful Sona were well under way.

Modise added they expected no disruptions, despite the Economic Freedom Fighters threatening to the turn the Sona into a roasting of Ramaphosa over his dealings with a company implicated in State capture.

 

Maimane says Ramaphosa must make public his statement over R500 000 bribe

Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane today said President Cyril Ramaphosa must make public his statement that he had agreed to submit to the Public Protector, Busisiwe Mkhwebane over her investigation into the R500 000 donation paid by Bosasa chief executive Gavin Watson.

On Tuesday, the Presidency confirmed that Ramaphosa would meet with Mkhwebane following a complaint made to her office alleging that the president violated the Executive Ethics Code by deliberately misleading Parliament about the donation and requesting an investigation into whether there was an improper relationship between the president and Bosasa.
