The Commission of Inquiry into State Capture will hear Bosasa-related evidence from its former secretary Dr Khotso de Wee later on Friday. Former Bosasa COO Angelo Agrizzi alleged that the facility management company had paid De Wee and other officials bribes while still working for the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development.
The money was paid to secure a tender for the establishment of a security system in various courts across the country.
Dr Khotso de Wee took a special leave in 2019 when allegations of corruption surfaced against him.
