Durban - Former KwaZulu-Natal Hawks boss Johan Booysen who began testifying in the Mokgoro Inquiry on Monday did not hold back when he told the commission the reasons for why he was arrested and later charged with charges of racketeering.
The now retired policeman pointed the finger at Edward Zuma is the son of former president Jacob Zuma and businessman, Thoshan Panday and suspended national director of public prosecutions Nomgcobo Jiba.
The Mokgoro Inquiry, led by retired Constitutional Court Judge Yvonne Mokgoro is tasked with probing the fitness of Jiba and the head of Special Commercial Crime Unit (SCCU), Advocate Lawrence Mrwebi, to hold office in the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA).
Here are 7 bombshells Booysen dropped at the inquiry:
1) In his testimony, Booysen told the inquiry that his legal troubles with Jiba began in August 2012 after he turned down a request made to him by Edward Zuma that he allow the police treasury to release an outstanding R15 million payment which was owed to Panday.
