A man who allegedly spied on people on behalf of late Bosasa boss Gavin Watson died a suspicious death at a guesthouse on the West Rand in 2018. His family says there are many unanswered questions, but police have closed the case.
According to the family, Chris Herbst died in the Cottage Lodge in Randfontein on Friday, June 29 2018, minutes after drinking coffee that his “girlfriend, whom he’d known for only three weeks”, had brought to him. She apparently later asked the lodge staff for Handy Andy to wash the cups. She has since disappeared and no one knows her name.
