An exposure of the shady dealings of Gavin Watson's company that funded the ANC and won corrupt tenders worth billions of rand, all in the name of Christianity and BEE. Watson died in a car crash close to OR Tambo International Airport in August 2019, with Bosasa in liquidation and at the centre of state capture investigations by the Zondo Commission.

Journalist Adriaan Basson started covering the Bosasa story in 2006 at the Afrikaans daily newspaper Beeld, where he later became editor. In 2016 he was appointed editor-in-chief of the news site, News24. He is the author of Zuma Exposed and Enemy of the People, how Jacob Zuma stole South Africa and how the people fought back (with Pieter du Toit).
