Former BOSASA COO Angelo Agrizzi is continuing to take the skeletons out at the Zondo commission  on his eighth day of testimony.


He claims that three journalists received bribes for Bosasa from 2012 to write positive stories about the company.

He was today asked to name them and he named them as a certain “Nthuli”, former Sunday Times journalist Pinky Kaosane and “Bongs.”

He further alleged that Bosasa executive papa Leshabane was handed R71,000 a month to give out bribes of which R30 was paid to Journos.

“At the time Bosasa had been going through a very rough patch in terms of negative reporting from certain journalists and what happened was he had approached us and said he can arrange some friends who are related to people and friends that he knows that have got the ability to swing the journalistic viewpoints,” Agrizzi stated.
