'Angelo Agrizzi's evidence at the Zondo Commission was completely astounding'
Former COO at Bosasa, now named the African Global Group, Angelo Agrizzi gave shocking evidence at the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture on Wednesday.
Agrizzi told the commission how Bosasa spent R4 million to R6 million a month on bribes. Tiso Blackstar Associate Editor Ranjeni Munusamy says his testimony was a huge surprise.
As it was the first day of the commission. We were not told in advance whether there would be a witness and who that witness would be. Agrizzi has previously made revelations about what was going on at Bosasa, but the detail was completely astounding.Ranjeni Munusamy, Tiso Blackstar Associate Editor
The other thing that was amazing was that he was incriminating himself and doing so willingly and basically spelling out how this corruption system was working.Ranjeni Munusamy, Tiso Blackstar Associate Editor
Munusamy explains that Agrizzi's testimony was the first that was not related to the Gupta's and it shows that corruption is inherent in politics.
It shows that the Guptas didn't the state capture system, they probably just perfected it.Ranjeni Munusamy, Tiso Blackstar Associate Editor
