An account of how Gavin Watson, former CEO of Bosasa, paid bribes to senior former government ministers and ex-officials from the correctional services department in exchange for lucrative government contracts. Watson, under investigation for bribery, died on 26th August 2019, a day before he was to testify before a tax evasion and money laundering inquiry.

"A timely, thorough account of the Bosasa saga. The chronicle of the transition from freedom fighters to unscrupulous state captors is astonishing." Pieter-Louis Myburgh, author of Gangster State
