Van Tonder on Tuesday told the commission that Bosasa boss Gavin Watson used mandatory early morning prayer meetings as a tool to control his staff. “He used those sessions as a tool to determine loyalty to him he insisted that everyone pray out loud, saying he needed to hear where we were at.

Van Tonder also testified that he felt used by Watson after investigations into Bosasa’s financial affairs by the SA Revenue Service (Sars) cleared Bosasa in 2015.
