President Cyril Ramaphosa has received Part 3 of the State Capture report. The four-part report zooms in on Bosasa, now African Global Operations.

It’s alleged that the company was used as a front to get kickbacks in exchange for lucrative government contracts.
Former Bosasa COO, Angelo Agrizzi testified to this, implicating Energy Minister Gwede Mantashe and former Water and Sanitation Minister Nomvula Mokonyane before the State Capture Commission.
He’s subsequently been accused of offering gratification, on behalf of Bosasa, to former MP Vincent Smith in exchange for his influence.
The final report is expected to be handed over to the President at the end of April.

Last month, African Transformation Movement (ATM) leader, Vuyo Zungula slated the Zondo Commission for its request for an extension to finalise the State Capture Commission of Inquiry report, saying the request put Zondo’s administration and competency under the spotlight.
Zungula said at the time he hoped that was not meant to influence the outcome of the appointment of a new Chief Justice.
The commission gave various reasons for the delay, including Zondo’s appearance before for the Judicial Service Commission.
“The Acting Chief Justice, Raymond Zondo is bringing his administration and competence into question given these delays. You would remember that when the commission had sat, it had received timeous extensions in order for it to complete its work. Now that its work is completed, we see another trend of reports being delayed when it comes to being issues to the public. We hope this is not the manner upon which the Acting Chief Justice is trying to influence the sitting President as Chief Justice of the country (sic),” said Zungula.
