Johannesburg - Former Bosasa CEO Gavin Watson was using the car he died in for this weekend only as his own vehicle had mechanical problems.
Speaking to eNCA, Bosasa Executive Director Papa Leshabana, confirming Watson's death, said they were told that Watson's car was at a garage and being repaired hence he took the company car that he later died in.
"What I know is that the car that he normally drives...we were told it has a mechanical problem. It’s at the garage and he needed a car to use for the weekend," Leshabana said.
The former Bosasa CEO was driving in the OR Tambo International Airport precinct on Monday morning in a white Toyota Corolla registered under Bosasa when he allegedly lost control of the car and collided with a concrete pillar holding up a highway bridge.
Watson, who was alone in the car, was certified dead on the scene and a case of culpable homicide has been opened.
