An angry acting ANC spokesperson Zizi Kodwa has revealed that the events in recent weeks at the Zondo commission makes it crystal clear that Bosasa ran ‘the country like an underworld, like a mafia’ state
This is coming after provoking revelations at the state capture commission of inquiry over the past seven days about how Bosasa allegedly undermined the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) and the Hawks.
Kodwa further affirmed that there was a plan to create a “mafia state”.
He noted that “attempts to capture law enforcement agencies in the manner that has been revealed by some of the testimony is shocking”.
He branded Bosasa as a cartel that set out to create “a state of lawlessness, a mafia state” following the seventh day of testimony by former Bosasa chief operations officer Angelo Agrizzi.
Agrizzi revealed on Thursday how the Krugersdorp company had allegedly bribed senior NPA officials Nomgcobo Jiba, Lawrence Mrwebi and Jackie Lepinka, Jiba’s former personal assistant, in exchange for them providing Bosasa with information on the ongoing case against the company and government officials and, eventually, killing the matter entirely.
