ANC President, Cyril Ramaphosa, says the ruling party would never have accepted donations from the controversial company, Bosasa.

Ramaphosa has been testifying before the Zondo commission of inquiry, investigating state capture.

In 2019, Former Bosasa COO, Angelo Agrizzi, told the Commission that the company funded ANC election campaigns with food parcels and party T-shirts in some instances.

These donations were made while the company had been awarded numerous government contracts at the Department of Correctional Services.

Ramaphosa says the party must have known that Bosasa was reliant on government contracts.

“Leadership right now, that has had to draw a line, is responding to increasing corruption and factionalism, and this problem is not going away. It continues to entrench itself by increasing, therefore, it requires drastic action that should be taken because it is resulting to less and less support for the ANC, weakening and dividing the party,” explains Ramaphosa.
