Described by those he was about to implicate as a "disgruntled former employee" on a mission to tarnish Bain's name, Williams owned up to this character in both actions and words. He described every little detail on how the US consulting firm plotted with former President Jacob Zuma to bring in Tom Moyane, the man that would drive SARS to the ground.

"This testimony, the last 18 months leading to me coming here have been incredibly hard. To say the things I did about Bain was not easy because these are my friends. These are people I've known for over 25 years and they gave me my career break," Williams described his anguish after getting many of the dirty details he had on Bain off his chest.ers always know what's going on," said Williams.
