The Democratic Alliance has called for a full investigation into the death of Bosasa CEO Gavin Watson.
This comes after Watson was killed in a car crash near OR Tambo Airport on Monday morning.
Party spokesperson Solly Malatsi called on the Police Service to "take the nation into its confidence" and provide South Africans with all the information about the incident as it emerges.
The DA released a public statement addressing Watson's death, Briefly.co.za has gathered.
"The death of Gavin Watson may have a material impact on the work of the Zondo Commission of Inquiry," the statement reads. "It is therefore vital, that even a whiff of foul play is dispelled by a thorough and transparent investigation by the SAPS."
The party added that they believe Watson still had more revelations to make before the Zondo Commission.
Additionally, Malatsi offered his condolences to Watson's family and urged the SAPS to conduct a thorough investigation into the events leading up to Watson's death. The DA argues that this is particularly important, given the allegations that Bosasa was involved in extensive corruption
"[Bosasa] has channelled millions into the coffers of the ANC in general and specifically the campaign of Ramaphosa," the party says.
