The Sources close to commission investigators say he will tell deputy chief justice Raymond Zondo of how Bosasa paid off Zuma and two top officials at the NPA – special director of public prosecutions Lawrence Mrwebi and deputy national director of public prosecutions Nomgcobo Jiba. He will claim they were still receiving their monthly payments when he left the company in 2016.

Contacted for comment, Jiba denied stalling the Bosasa case, saying she tried to fast-track it. She said she has already approached the commission to dispute Agrizzi’s testimony and said she did not receive a cent from Bosasa or anyone linked to it.

“He said I received R100,000 a month since 2011. That’s over R10m. If I got that money, why did I subject myself to all of this at the NPA? I would have resigned.”

Jiba said she wants the police to get to the bottom of who took money from Bosasa in her name.

Bosasa paid Jiba and Mrwebi R100,000 and R10,000 a month respectively, Agrizzi will claim.
