Johannesburg - Angelo Agrizzi wrapped-up his testimony at the Zondo commission on Tuesday bringing an end to 10-days of widespread revelations into allegations of corruption at facilities management company Bosasa.
Agrizzi told deputy chief justice Raymond Zondo that he was willing to cooperate with law enforcement agencies including SARS and the inquiry in an effort to get to the bottom of state capture.
On his last day, he told the inquiry about threats to his life and how he was almost at the cusp of signing a deal with Watsons which could have seen him keep silent about the corruption at Bosasa. He said he was offered an R5 million payment every year for five years in an effort to buy his silence. Agrizzi said he rejected the offer because he wanted to "come clean".
He submitted emails and text messages in an effort to prove that he was being offered a bribe to remain silent.
In a shocking move, he also admitted that he was a racist after an audio clip was played at the commission. In the clip, Agrizzi is heard saying the K-word numerous times while laughing. He said the clip was recorded and made public in an effort to discredit him and his efforts to expose corruption at Bosasa.
