ANC applies to state capture commission to cross-examine Bosasa whistleblower


CAPE TOWN, March 29 – South Africa’s governing party on Friday said it has applied to the commission of inquiry into state capture to cross-examine former Bosasa chief operations officer.

The application comes after Angelo Agrizzi on Thursday told the commission he knew of around R10 million to R12 million donated to the African National Congress (ANC) top six, which included the party president, deputy president, secretary general, deputy secretary general, chairperson and treasurer general.

“The leadership of the ANC has publicly stated that it will, at an appropriate time, present itself to the Commission where the ANC will make a full submission that will answer all allegations tabled against it,” the ANC said in a statement.

“However, Mr Agrizzi’s testimony cannot be left unchallenged. We, therefore, cannot wait for a comprehensive submission to the Commission.” (ANA)
