News24 are really running with this Bosasa story, given the hypocrisy of the ANC: https://www.news24.com/SouthAfrica/News/in-pictures-the-anc-proudly-sponsored-by-bosasa-20190227

Whatever the ANC and its leaders desired or needed, the former Bosasa - now know as African Global Operations - was there to make it happen, a series of photographs revealed.

News24 has obtained new pictures that show just how far the corruption-accused company's deep pockets went to lubricate the company's cosy relationship with the ruling ANC over many years. Despite a cloud of corruption allegations looming large over Bosasa and its executives, leaders in the ANC seemed to have no qualms about having dealings with them.
It is understood the donations, conservatively estimated by a Bosasa insider to be R40m, span nearly two decades between 2000 and 2019.

This is against the backdrop of continuous media reports detailing corruption at the highest level, involving Bosasa and bribes the company allegedly paid to former correctional services commissioner Linda Mti and former chief financial officer for the prisons department Patrick Gillingham.
All the usual perks, food parcels for political rallies, golf-day sponsorships, Zuma birthday, etc. Proudly bought by corrupt prisons tenders.

The Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) will investigate the ANC's alleged Bosasa-funded election"war rooms", the body has confirmed in a letter to DA leader Mmusi Maimane.

This comes after the DA laid a complaint with the IEC. The party believes the allegation that Bosasa - now known as African Global Operations – set up ANC election "war rooms", costing about R6m, at their Krugersdorp headquarters during the past three elections.

Have any of the law enforcement agencies headed the ANC call to action?

Thread necro. Adriaan Basson has been investigating this story for more than a decade. Extracts from his new book detail some of the early connections between Mti and Watson:

The ANC put their own stooges into the NPA and as a result the NPA has been useless for years. Now the ANC wants their own guys held accountable via the NPA that they crippled? I don't see this happening - if ever.

State capture was enabled by the non political ones, Eskom, Transnet, SABC and everywhere, politicians are always conspiring with the non political ones to do the dirty deeds, the non politicals will give us the politicians if we hit them hard enough, if we were throw Bruce Koloane in jail tomorrow he would tell us exactly who told him to authorize the Gupta aircraft landing.

Some progress at the NPA, with senior police in the line-up, while Zondo is still in the background:
She said they had focused on the prosecutions of senior police members, who are still in the police, including a former acting national commissioner, a provincial commissioner and eight generals.

So a couple of low-leve fall-guys will receive 2-month sentences. Probably Jacob's gardener at Nkandla, and someone who once scratched his car by accident. Big deal.

Funny that you say it. Like you, I also thought she was talking about apples. Great minds think alike and all that.

Turning to their investigations into state owned enterprises, Cronjé said in December there were arrests of "what people would call low hanging fruit".

I agree they are not the top-level, but police generals are not low-level by any stretch of the imagination.
