Former President Jacob Zuma described Gavin Watson as an extraordinary man and a friend who contributed immensely to the country.
The former Bosasa CEO, who was a central figure in allegations of corrupt relations between the company and government officials, died under mysterious circumstances in a car crash near OR Tambo International Airport last week.
Zuma, who was alleged to have been one of the beneficiaries of corrupt dealings at Bosasa, spoke at Watson’s funeral service in Port Elizabeth on Tuesday.
“This extraordinary man, who comes from an extraordinary family, he is the only one I remember, who came to my little home called Nkandla and we had a good time,” Zuma said.
Watson’s death came just a day before he was scheduled to testify at the tax inquiry.
