Former Bosasa auditor Peet Venter told the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture that he paid money into Andile Ramaphosa's account on Gavin Watson's instructions.
Over a couple of months, we managed to cultivate a few sources who were close to Bosasa and we figured out that there was a monthly fee being paid in exchange for projects that Andile Ramaphosa's company, Blue Crane had identified in Uganda and Kenya.Kyle Cowen, Investigative journalist - News24
We carried on digging and on Monday we finally sat down with Andile and we put these findings to him and he said this is how much we got paid and this was what the deal was all about.Kyle Cowen, Investigative journalist - News24
