Former Bosasa Chief Operations Officer (COO) Angelo Agrizzi is back at the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture on Thursday.
He made headlines at his first appearance earlier this year where he detailed how Bosasa boss Gavin Watson allegedly bribed people including ministers in the government.
Watching all the developments at the commission, EWN reporter Bonga Dlulane speaks to Thembekile Mrototo.
Agrizzi spoke mostly about all the contracts at Bosasa that he had with various government departments. He also said that before he gave evidence, he received threats on his life; however, but said that didn't deter him.— Bonga Dlulane, Reporter - EWN
He said Bosasa received many contracts from government departments including Home Affairs, Correctional Services and Airports Company South Africa through bribes.— Bonga Dlulane, Reporter - EWN
He says in 10 years the contracts amounted to over R2.5 billion with bribes that amounted to R70 million and that is apart from the fact that they also bought cars, houses and alcohol amongst other things.— Bonga Dlulane, Reporter - EWN
Dlulane reports that Agrizzi says that there so much coming in at Bosasa that they had to find ways of creatively putting that money into the company's accounts so that they would pay tax dividends.
So you have people here stealing and then they don't also want to pay Sars.— Bonga Dlulane, Reporter - EWN
Dlulane says when asked about Venter's testimony, Agrizzi said he wanted as much evidence as possible and wanted Watson to be caught from all directions.
