Following the accusation, the Magistrate's Commission gave Nair a chance to explain himself.

This comes after Richard Le Roux, an ex-Bosasa employee, testified before the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture. 

Le Roux claims that Bosasa provided several high profile people with special perks and services in exchange for their support or collaboration. These include installing generators, putting up electric fences and security cameras, and more, according to the Sunday Times.

Desmond Nair was not the only notable person Bosasa gave these services to, however. He also said that Gwede Mantashe and former SAA head Dudu Myeni received upgrades and renovations from Bosasa.

According to Le Roux, all of these projects were signed off by CEO Gavin Watson and former COO Angelo Agrizzi.

Bosasa has already been accused of operating extensive networks of corruption, reaching into the heights of government. While several government officials have already been implicate, the allegations against Nair are notable, as he is a member of the judiciary.
