The African National Congress says it supports the work of the State Capture Inquiry, even after its members are implicated of wrongdoing. The ANC says it will not account on behalf of those implicated.
ANC spokesperson Zizi Kodwa stated that the ANC will continue to support the work done by the State Capture Commission and wants anyone with information to step forward and testify.
The ANC continues to support the work of the Zondo Commission, we continue to call all those who have information to come forward and help the commission to establish the seriousness of the allegations that have been made about state capture.
According to a report by eNCA, the ANC will not account on behalf of any of its members that are implicated by the commission.
The ANC encourage individuals who are implicated to appear before and testify at the commission.
This comes after Angelo Agrizzi, a former executive of facilities management company Bosassa, said the company spent more than R4 million a month on bribing politicians and government officials in exchange for tenders.
He made the bombshell statement before the Zondo Commission. Among the state-owned enterprises which he claims Bosassa bribed include the Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) and the South African Post Office (SAPO).
Agrizzi claims that the bribes, which were stored in a walk-in vault, were usually handed over in cash bundled up in grey security bags. Agrizzi insisted that then Bosassa CEO Gavin Watson knew about the bribes.
Briefly.co.za reported that Agrizzi has implicated the ANC in fraud and corruption, claiming that the ruling party requested funds from the company to go towards their election campaign.
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,"
