He says Andile is providing such services to both national and international companies including Bosasa Security company.
The President was answering questions in the National Assembly on Tuesday.
Maimane revealed evidence to show that Andile allegedly received half a million rands from Bosasa last year.
“Here I hold a proof of payment that was transferred, to say half a million rand need to be transferred into a Trust account called EFG2 on the 18th of October last year. This was allegedly put for your son Andile Ramaphosa.
“Following on to that Mr President I have a sworn affidavit from Peet Venter that he was asked by the CEO of Bosasa that he must make this transfer for Andile Ramaphosa. Mr President, we can’t have family members benefiting,” Maimane added.
In his answer, Ramaphosa says when the matter was brought to his attention he engaged his son on it.
“He consults for a number of companies and one of those companies is Bosasa where he provides services on entrepreneurship and particularly on the procurement process and he advises both local and international companies. And this payment I can assure you Mr Maimane I asked him at close range whether this was money that was obtained illegally, unlawfully and he said this was a service that was provided.
“And to this end he actually showed me a contract that he signed with Bosasa and the contract also deals with issues of integrity, issues of anti corruption and all that. Now on this one I have made sure that I get the information as much as I can and he is running a clear and honest business as an advisory service,” the President explained.
However, Malema further challenged Ramaphosa’s answer saying the same should apply to the brother of EFF Chief Whip Floyd Shuivambu, who is implicated in the VBS saga for providing services to the bank.
“If the answer you gave is acceptable to your colleagues, then the same answer stands with Brian Shivambu. Because it cannot be if it is your children with contracts, invoices and they can account for the work they have done – it is acceptable, but when it comes to Brian Shivambu, it is a different matter altogether.”
