JOHANNESBURG - The nephew of the late Bosasa CEO Gavin Watson is adamant his uncle was not corrupt.

Jared Watson says evidence linking his uncle to payments to ANC MPs was cooked up.

He has pointed the finger at Bosasa's former COO Angelo Agrizzi and former CFO Andries van Tonder.

"There were many, many schemes where these guys would siphon money out of the organisation for themselves, it is confirmable from various bank accounts, from the payments from Bosasa to entities that they established in which they were the sole signatories to those entities and the sole members," he said. 

Watson also says the facilities management company must be considered innocent until proven guilty.

He says many other organisations have donated to and done business with the ANC without being questioned or criticised.

Bosasa was accused of paying off ANC MPs to score lucrative government tenders.
