'Knowing what we know about Bosasa, we deserve some answers from Ramaphosa'
President Cyril Ramaphosa has more answering to do about his relations with corruption-accused facilities management company, Bosasa.
Ramaphosa received a donation of R500 000 from the embattled company and initially made conflicting statements about the intended use of the funds.
Former Bosasa COO, Angelo Agrizzi has been exposing government officials who apparently received bribes from the company, while testifying at the state capture inquiry.
Political analyst Mcebisi Ndletyana says South Africans have legitimate reasons to be concerned after the recent revelations about the scandal-plagued government contractor.

Now we know that Bosasa used to give all sorts of monies to all sorts of people in return for certain direct and tangible benefits.Mcebisi Ndletyana, Politics and International Relations Associate Professor at UJ
I think it is legitimate to raise questions - knowing what we know now - about whether there were any benefits which were given to Bosasa [in exhange].Mcebisi Ndletyana, Politics and International Relations Associate Professor at UJ
The EFF has threatened to disrupt the state of the nation address (Sona) if Ramaphosa doesn't account before the end of January.
Ndletyana says it's expected for opposition parties to use this controversy as political capital ahead of the elections.
Meanwhile, Ramaphosa is on a state visit to India where he was officially welcomed at the Presidential Palace on Friday.
