The sudden demise of fraud and corruption tainted chief executive officer of Bosasa Gavin Watson has been labelled as a set back for the Zondo commission which is probing allegations of state capture.
The chairperson of the Radical Economic Transformation (RET) Champion, Nkosentsha Shezi, said the “suspicious” death is also a setback for the truth and it instills fears on other potential witnesses for the commission.
Speaking to Independent Media late on Monday following the death of Watson spreading like wildfires, Shezi said they want the crash to be thoroughly probed so that the truth behind the mysterious death can be known.
“The death of Watson is a setback for the truth and we are now on the edges of our seats, scared and asking ourselves which witness will follow in a mysterious car crash from now onwards,” Shezi.
The ANC meanwhile, which is alleged to have pocketed at least R3 million from Bosasa and have two senior members Cyril Ramaphosa and Jacob Zuma entangled in the web of the companies alleged corruption, mourned the passing of Watson.
