Johannesburg - Trade union Solidarity on Tuesday said it would interrogate Bosasa CEO Gavin Watson as it is unacceptable for employees to "bear the brunt for corrupt persons and practices while those very people come off scot-free".
The announcement comes after Bosasa announced its voluntary liquidation on Monday, jeopardising some 4 500 jobs.
"Since the announcement, employees affected by it have started protesting outside Bosasa’s head office in Mogale City," Solidarity said.
The trade union said the interrogation will be by means of the process which is provided for in section 65 of the Insolvency Act to expose Watson's share in the Bosasa debacle.
"This is a very sad story in which lives are destroyed at the hands of corrupt businessmen and politicians. We will certainly see to it that those who caused the Bosasa debacle are brought to book," said Anton Van der Bijl, head of Solidarity’s Labour Law Services.
