The former executive told the commission he feared for his life after spotting a former police officer who is an employee of Bosasa at the inquiry, suggesting a security breach.
Agrizzi says he was threatened every time he wanted to leave the company, which is now known as African Global Investments.
“What would happen is: if you didn’t do what was told to you or you questioned it, you became a problem. And problems would have to leave [and] they would have their salaries cut. We were constantly told that we were white males and that you would not find a job anywhere out there. As soon as we stop doing what we were told to do, the wrath of everything would come down on us.”
