Bosasa, now known as African Global Operations, has previously been named as a benefactor to several other high-profile ANC figures.

It comes after Ramaphosa backtracked on his Parliamentary reply regarding a R500,000 payment into his son's account by the controversial company Bosasa.

The integrity committee, an internal ANC structure led by party veterans, has been set up to ensure that its cadres accused of corrupt practices or for having brought the organisation into disrepute, account for their actions.

But he later admitted it was a donation towards his own campaign a year ago to become leader of the ruling ANC party, a hard-fought battle in which he beat Mr Zuma's chosen candidate.

According to the president's campaign team, Ramaphosa was neither part of fundraising, nor did he have a record of who made donations.

Maimane posed the question about the payment during a Q&A session in Parliament.

Spokesperson Pule Mabe said, "The president has demonstrated greater accountability and transparency to the people of this country that as soon as he became aware of this matter, he then went out to state those in the public".

Ramaphosa's answer isn't good enough, according to DA leader Mmusi Maimane.

She said: "This has severe and serious implications for the ANC".
