On Friday 25 October Sihle Mavuso wrote: “The downfall of former DA leader Mmusi Maimane has been traced back to the time he ruffled some feathers high up in the party on the Bosasa donation.” (The Star, 25 October 2019, p6)

According to the report Prof Sipho Seepe says Maimane’s digging into CR17 triggered the public protector’s investigation into donors to political parties. “This led to the exposure of donors, who had also donated to the DA.” (ibid)

The Bosasa Billions, by James-Brent Styan and Paul Vecchiatto, explains in easy language just how wide the web was that Gavin Watson and his team had created to wiggle their way into the pockets, and influence, of various high-powered politicians and civil servants.

It is an easy read by the same author who had also blown open the Steinhoff saga.

The book is available at Bargain Books, Exclusive Books, The Book Lounge, Graffiti Books,, Takealot, Uppercase, CNA, PNA and many other book stores.

It reads like a thriller. Had it not been true, one would never be able to believe the vaults full of cash and the handbags stuffed with money.

Read it.

The book is by LAPA publishers.
