W Cape govt investigating if it has any Bosasa contracts
MEC for Economic Opportunities in the Western Cape Alan Winde has confirmed that Premier Helen Zille has ordered that all Bosasa linked contracts be investigated following evidence by former COO, Angelo Agrizzi at the Zondo Commission.
Agrizzi has been implicating senior politicians in corruption and money laundering. He revealed some names that were on Bosasa's payroll for bribes, including some journalists.
Winde says so far it looks like there is no link between Bosasa and the Western Cape government but all will be revealed as soon as an investigation is completed.
In our system, no MEC or minister is allowed anywhere near the procurement process but obviously, everything will come out in an investigation but I'm fairly confident.Alan Winde, Western Cape Community Safety MEC
The first thing is, are there any contracts whatsoever, where are those contracts, which departments, what are those contracts for? And we will take from there.Alan Winde, Western Cape Community Safety MEC
From day one we said we want to run a really clean government and when anybody has been found with labour charges in the last ten years, those officials will be jailed.Alan Winde, Western Cape Community Safety MEC
