Cape Town - The Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State capture heard shocking revelations this week as numerous witnesses took to the stand.
* Frans Vorster, Bosasa’s former head of central business, who managed the company's dealings with the Lindela Repatriation Centre, told the commission that in 2004, former Department of Correctional Services chief financial officer Patrick Gillingham got a Mercedes-Benz E270 from Bosasa after trading in his Mercedes E240. The company paid R155 000 to buy the car when it was valued between R80 000 and R90 000.
The allegations against the Department of Correctional Services did not stop there. Gillingham’s former boss and Correctional Services national commissioner Linda Mti also got a silver VW Touareg V8 after Bosasa chief executive Gavin Watson instructed Vorster to buy a car for the former head of security for the 2010 Fifa World Cup.
* Former Bosasa COO Angelo Agrizzi dropped a bombshell when he admitted to being a racist.
"I am a racist I admit, you can judge me on that it's fine," Agrizzi told the Zondo commission.
