Golf days, birthday parties, birthday cake, packed lunches, money for big events and rallies, election rooms, donations and friendship.
Whatever the ANC and its leaders wanted or needed, the former Bosasa – now known as African Global Operations – was there to make that happen, as a series of photographs revealed.
News24 has received new imagery showing how far the deep pocket of the corrupter accused of corruption has helped lubricate the company's good relationship with the ANC over many years. Despite a cloud of allegations of corruption by Bosasa and his leaders, ANC leaders seemed to have no qualms about interacting with them.
Last week, when confronted with a photo of a Bosasa delegation at Luthuli House in 2014, former ANC Director-General Zweli Mkhize confirmed that Bosasa had donated to the ANC "directly and in shape".
It is understood that the donations conservatively estimated at R40m by a Bosasa insider will stretch to almost two decades between 2000 and 2019.
This is done against the background of continuous media reports on top-level corruption, including Bosasa. Bribes allegedly paid by the company to former Criminal Justice Commissioner Linda Mti and the former Chief Financial Officer of prison department Patrick Gillingham.
