The EFF has required the quick recusal of the secretary of the legal commission into claims of state catch, Khotso de Wee, after he was embroiled in renumeration charges against Bosasa
On Friday, according to reports De Wee had been implicated in testimony before the commission by former Bosasa executive Angelo Agrizzi who has been delivering captivating evidence before the commission since Wednesday.
Agrizzi will name De Wee as a recipient of cash payments relating to a 2008 tender awarded to Bosasa subsidiary Sondolo IT by the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development for the installation of security systems at courts around the country.
De Wee was placed on special leave on Friday following the revelation.
According to EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, the information was enough reason for De Wee to “fall on his sword”.
“The state capture commission should never be aided by nor composed of people who are implicated in any wrongdoing because they will undermine its integrity,” he said in a statement.
“The EFF is particularly concerned that the secretary of the commission also breached the security of the commission, thereby exposing witnesses to potential danger from people who are implicated. Furthermore, the secretary of the commission has not been honest and upfront on the costs associated with hiring the venue which the commission is using to conduct its work.”
