Speaking at the Zondo commission of inquiry, Angelo Agrizzi has implicated the ruling party in fraud and corruption, claiming that the ANC requested funds from the company to go towards their election campaign.

Earlier today, Agrizzi had detailed how BOSASA had paid R1.8 million towards the ANC's election campaign in the North West in 2014. He had described how the company's head of youth development centres, Syvion Dlamini, had attended a meeting in Rustenburg, where the MEC for social development had been present.

Although he could not recall her name, he said that:

"At the meeting I was told it was for electioneering."

Agrizzi further claims that the department of social development had paid BOSASA R3.4 million for software that hadn't cost BOSASA anything. The company had retained some of the funds and handed the rest over to the ANC to fund their campaign.

Agrizzi had explained that:

"The way we managed it, it would be difficult for an auditor or even a forensic auditor to pick it up,"

Angelo Agrizzi is set to return to the commission on Thursday.
