Zuma paid tribute to the late Bosasa CEO at a funeral service in Port Elizabeth on Tuesday.
The controversial businessman died in a car crash last week near OR Tambo International Airport.
He said just like him, his friend Watson was vilified: “Those who were fighting and sacrificing everything to bring about freedom are today made the worst people to look [at] in the country.”
Zuma said even the state capture commission of inquiry was used to target Watson.
“Suddenly, we got to the stage where a commission was used to further deal with this family.”
The former president previously claimed the commission was established to assassinate his character and target his family.
