- It has been confirmed that Gavin Watson was killed in a car crash on Monday morning
- The news drew a range of responses
- The EFF's Mbuyiseni Ndozi and Floyd Shivambu have suggested foul play
Former Bosasa CEO Gavin Watson has died in a car accident near OR Tambo Airport.
There have already been many responses to the news from across the country.
Here's how citizens and politicians have weighed in.
EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi was among those who have commented on Watson's death, Briefly.co.za has gathered.
"Gavin Watson's death comes only a week after Barry Eugene Farber, founder of the law firm (Edelstein Farber Grobler) into whose ABSA bank account Bosasa deposited R500 000 donation from its boss Gavin Watson for the CR17 camping also died, mysteriously, in his sleep," Ndlzo posted.
Ndlozi's implication that foul play may have been involved was echoed by EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu.
"Gavin Watson? The Rogue Unit has started!" Shivambu tweeted.
Details are still emerging, however, and their suggestions are not yet supported by any evidence.
Former deputy leader of the Independent Democrats, Simon Grindrod, also commented on the news, albeit in a very different fashion.
" Let us all remember that Gavin Watson has a family, he has loved ones," he wrote on social media. "Spare a thought for those left behind in their hour of tragedy."
