With Angelo Agrizzi implicating numerous high ranking officials in his testimony before the Zondo Commission, its hardly surprising that a suspicious account has popped up on social media platform Twitter.

The account uses a photo taken during an interview and claims that Agrizzi has been receiving death threats since he starting testifying.

The account, real or not, has garnered a ton of attention with over 3 500 followers since its creation yesterday.

Agrizzi's testimony has implicated top government officials such as former president, Jacob Zuma, and even the commissions own secretary, Dr Khotso de Wee, in bribery and corruption.

Briefly.co.za reported earlier that the former COO had claimed 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.

Agrizzi also claims BOSASA paid ex-president Jacob Zuma a staggering R300 000 a month in exchange for political protection.

This new Twitter profile is almost certainly a clever individual, who is using the controversy surrounding Agrizzi and BOSASA, to carve out an almost instant platform for themselves on social media.

Should it turn out to actually be the one and only Angelo, perhaps he has been enjoying the sudden attention aimed in his direction and decided to make the most of it.

One wonders if there is WIFI in witness protection? Perhaps for this VIP in the Zondo Inquiry an exception has been made?
