In a shocking turn of events, former BOSASA COO Angelo Agrizzi has implicated the secretary of the state capture commission of inquiry, Dr Khotso de Wee, in bribery and corruption.
Angelo Agrizzi has testified that De Wee was a recipient of cash payments concerning a 2008 tender awarded to Sondolo IT, a subsidiary of BOSASA.
The tender had been awarded by the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development ( DOJ) for security systems to be installed at courts on a national scale.
De Wee had been appointed by Deputy Cheif Justice Raymond Zondo in 2018 to serve as the secretary for the commission. De Wee had been the chief operations officer at the DOJ in 2008.
According to Agrizzi, De Wee had received a payment of an undisclosed amount of cash on a monthly basis from BOSASA through Sesinyi Seopela.
Allegedly this had been in exchange for the contract, worth R600 million, to be awarded to Sondolo IT.
At the time of publishing the commission has not given comment on the situation.
According to News24, De Wee could pose a threat to Agrizzi’s safety. The former COO has been placed into witness protection after receiving death threats.
On Wednesday, ex-cop Solomon Segale who is a BOSASA employee, allegedly snuck into the commission using an expired police ID.
