Mantashe and Mokonyane received security upgrades from Bosasa, inquiry hears
Another Bosasa-linked employee, Richard Le Roux is on the stand at the state capture inquiry.
Le Roux is a regional technical coordinator for a Bosasa subsidiary, Global Technology Systems.
He has told the commission how government officials' houses were installed with security cameras by the facilities management company.
EWN reporter Clement Manyathela says Le Roux has revealed that he was instructed to delete footage of VIP guests who visited the Bosasa offices.
He says he never viewed the footage but assumed that those VIP guests were senior government officials.Clement Manyathela, Reporter - EWN
He started mentioning names of senior government officials. He started by mentioning Nomvula Mokonyane. He has been to Mokonyane's house personally.Clement Manyathela, Reporter - EWN

Manyathela reports how Le Roux claims he installed CCTV, an electric fence, a generator, worked on the swimming pool and garden clean ups at Nkomvula Mokonyane's house, and was instructed to "do whatever that woman wants".
He says he did special projects at three properties which belonged to Gwede Mantashe - one was in Boksburg and two others in the Eastern Cape.Clement Manyathela, Reporter - EWN
They also installed CCTV cameras and did other security work estimated at R300 000.Clement Manyathela, Reporter - EWN
According to Le Roux's testimony, his relationship with Gavin Watson was strained.
He told the commission that at some point Watson asked him where his loyalty lay and his answer was with the company and not a particular person.
Code names were given to these projects done at the official's houses to conceal them from other employees, Le Roux told the commission.
