Former Bosasa COO Angelo Agrizzi has implicated African National Congress (ANC) MP Cedric Frolick in the State Capture Inquiry.
Continuing with his testimony on Friday, Agrizzi told the commission that Frolick is among the people who were paid by the controversial company.
He’s alleged that the House chairperson was being paid R40 000 a month to resolve what he refers to as 'the company’s problems' with ANC MP Vincent Smith.
