NC Education Department will go to Zondo Commission, if asked

Staff Writer | Apr 15, 2019
The provincial department says that, if called on to do so, it will testify at the state-capture commission over an allegation that an employee received a Bosasa bribe to secure a multi-million rand tender.

The Northern Cape Education Department says it is willing to present its side of the story after being implicated in testimony at the Zondo commission of enquiry into state capture.

Disgraced former Bosasa COO Angelo Agrizzi accused the department of engaging in bribery during his testimony at the inquiry last month. Agrizzi alleged that Bosasa paid an employee in the department a R1.2 million bribe in order to secure a tender worth millions.

We understand that the tender was for security upgrades at the department's building in Kimberley.

Spokesperson Lehuma Ntuane said the department would cooperate if called upon.

“The Zondo Commission was duly appointed to investigate state capture and, if we are called upon, we will cooperate.”
