While South Africans speculate as the the circumstances surrounding Gavin Watson's sudden death this morning, those investigating allegations have had to rethink their approach.

Speaking to IOL, Hawks spokesperson Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi commented that:

“I can only say that there are no challenges we have experienced so far. The investigations are still going on and with the latest tragedy that has happened, we still have to find out from the investigating team and the NPA (National Prosecuting Authority) as what is the way forward in terms of the investigation."

Mulaudzi was adamant that they were not focused solely on Watson, promising that anyone found guilty of illicit behaviour will be brought to task, Briefly.co.za gathered.

TimesLIVE discussed the CEO's passing with Jame-Brent Styan, who has dubbed the incident a set-back to the various investigations into the matter:

“He didn’t have a computer or an office. The impact of his death on the Bosasa investigations is therefore immense. He was a central figure to uncovering the truth about all the allegations relating to Bosasa, and now he’s not here to tell his version of events. It’s a major setback for the investigation.”
