State Capture Inquiry

Zondo commission's secretary implicated in Bosasa scandal - report

The Zondo Commission's own secretary Dr Khotso de Wee is one of the individuals implicated in the testimony of Bosasa executive Angelo Agrizzi.

Agrizzi is testifying for a third day at the state capture commission.

Dozens of senior officials are being implicated in corrupt relations with Bosasa (now known as African Global Group), a firm owned by the Watsons, an ANC luminary family.

The company is believed to have over R10 billion worth of contracts with the government.

Agrizzi has made shocking revelations so far and submitted evidence of a vault where, allegedly, bribe money was kept.

Eusebius McKaiser spoke to investigative journalist at News24 Kyle Cowan for the latest developments in the story.

What we found is that in March 2018, Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo appointed Khotso de Wee as the secretary to the commission and in Mr Agrizzi's testimony, he will name Dr de Wee as being a recipient of some of these cash bribes that have been making headlines for the past few days.

De Wee was for a long time the Chief Operations Officer at the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development so some of the larger tenders that Bosasa had received over the years, or rather a subsidiary of Bosasa called Sondolo IT, was from this department.

Cowan says there has been no response from de Wee and the commission.

To date we haven't received any response. As of this morning his phone was still on voicemail. I did spot him walking around the commission's offices, looking very busy so I didn't have an opportunity to corner him...hopefully by later this morning a version from Dr de Wee will come forward and we will be able to publish that.
