Frans Vorster, a former employee of BOSASA, has testified that Gavin Watson had instructed him to satisfy Minister Nomvula Mokonyane's every whim. According to Vorster, he had personally sourced and delivered luxury vehicles to the Minister's home.
Frans Vorster, a former BOSASA employee, has testified that he had been told to cater to Minister Nomvula Mokonyane's every whim.
According to Vorster, Gavin Watson ( CEO of the company) was committed to indulging her:
“He said to me: ‘Frans, do whatever she wants.'”
The former employee confirmed many of Angelo Agrizzi's testimony, saying that the company had continuously hired luxury vehicles for Mokonyane's daughter, despite the fact that she kept damaging them.
Vorster explained how, in 2015, Gavin Watson had told him to hire a cabriolet for the daughter.
When he had been unable to source the specific vehicle, Watson had instructed him to get any car, as long as it was luxurious:
“We ordered an Audi A3, silver in colour, rented that from Bidvest. I had to pick up the vehicle and take it through to the minister’s house.”
According to Eyewitness News, Vorster testified how the Minister's daughter had bumped the vehicles, but it didn't bother Watson in the least. Vorster explained that he would have to drop everything to attend to the minister's needs, claiming she held a lot of influence and opened doors for the company.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Agrizzi had testified how the minister would enjoy monthly payments, groceries and expensive parties at BOSASA's expense. Agrizzi had revealed that the company had even funded relatives funerals for Mokonyane.
