Agrizzi has also implicated ANC MP Vincent Smith who was believed to be "causing problems" for the company by asking “too many questions”. He says the payments were made in order to resolve this.

Smith was still a member of the Correctional Services Committee in Parliament. Smith is also alleged to have received payments.

He mentions a meeting with him [Smith]... Frolick managed to convince Vincent Smith to come to their side because he has also been implicated in receiving donations and renovations in his house.
