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.
All the usual perks, food parcels for political rallies, golf-day sponsorships, Zuma birthday, etc. Proudly bought by corrupt prisons tenders.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.
