In the final report from the Zondo commission, which was released this week, the commission chairperson also recommended that Frolick be investigated for corruption. Angelo Agrizzi, the former chief operating officer of Bosasa, told the commission in his testimony that, as early as 2010, he had been instructed by his boss Gavin Watson to pay Frolick R40 000 a month in cash.
Agrizzi said he was also present when Watson asked Frolick to do everything in his power to “win” Vincent Smith over to Bosasa. At the time, Smith was the chairperson of the justice and correctional services portfolio committee. If that did not work, Frolick was to see to it that Smith was moved to another committee.
