Former Bosasa chief operations officer Angelo Agrizzi has stunned the commission and the country with his startling, spine-chilling details about what goes on in the dark, secret corridors of power in the ANC government.
His in-depth allegations have lifted the lid on juicy, mouth-watering deals between the controversial company and government departments and officials.
Numerous government and union officials including former president Jacob Zuma were said to be on its payroll to secure lucrative contracts for the company.
Chief among them was apparently Environmental Affairs Minister Nomvula Mokonyane, who behaved like an old divine ruler. She was allegedly showered with gifts and money for more than a decade: a monthly allowance of R50000 in cash and annual Christmas gifts of 120 cases of cold drinks, four cases of high quality whisky, numerous cases of premium brandy, 40 cases of beer and lots of lamb, chicken beef and sausages to indulge in a gluttonous feast like the Romans.
