State Capture Inquiry

Angelo Agrizzi, the former Bosasa COO turned whistle-blower, wrapped up his sixth day of testimony before the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture on Wednesday.

It’s been a hell of a ride, with Agrizzi dropping bombshell after bombshell about the Bosasa bribery-machine that would – in his words – corrupt even the Pope.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Kyle Cowan, an investigative journalist at News24.

Cowan described the biggest bombshells from Agrizzi’s testimony.

Kyle Cowan, News24

He is larger than life… Expensive suits, expensive shoes, expensive cars… He knew what it took to take Bosasa to the next level… He was there for 16 years, he was part of the tender system. Now he’s spilling the beans… We do need to see a serious level of investigation before we can accept what he says…
