- Angelo Agrizzi told the Zondo Commision that Tom Moyane protected Bosasa from being blacklisted
- He said that bribes paid to the Department of Correctional Services increased by 50% while Moyane was in charge
- Moyane has already been investigated on other corruption charges
Angelo Agrizzi has alleged that Tom Moyane blocked the Treasury from blacklisting Bosasa.
The former Bosasa COO said that in 2013 the Treasury tried to blacklist the company after an investigation implicated Bosasa in shady dealings.
Moyane, then director-general of the department of correctional service, reportedly stifled the attempt to take action against Bosasa.
This is the latest in a series of revelations about the department's corrupt links to Bosasa. Agrizzi has also claimed that Bosasa bribed the department in exchange for lucrative tenders and contracts to build fences and install TV systems for the department which amounted to hundreds of millions of rands.
Agrizzi has said that Moyane's leadership, the amount of bribe money received by the department from Bosasa each month rose from R500 000 to R750 000. However, he admitted that he was not sure if Moyane specifically had received any money.
This is not the first time Moyane has been implicated in unlawful activities. He has also been investigated by the Hawks on two other occasions. Moyane, who later served as the head of Sars, was fired by Cyrl Ramaphosa after a judge found that he had allowed the revenue service to fall into disarray.
