News24 reports that Bosasa CEO Gavin Watson parked his metallic blue BMW X5 at the company's Krugersdorp office before he signed out a company Toyota Corolla for the weekend, in which he died on early hours of this morning.

The controversial businessman has also called a prayer meeting of directors at the company's office on Sunday morning.

His former colleagues were puzzled why he would have left his own luxury vehicle at the office in exchange for a vehicle similar to those used by the company's drivers for trips to OR Tambo Airport. 

While the Former Bosasa COO Angelo Agrizzi, who spilled the beans on the company's corruption at the Zondo commission, send his condolences to the Watson's family.

And the Bosasa spokesperson Papa Leshabane told ENCA that the car Watson was driving collided with a pole, and there were no other cars involved. He apparently lost control of the car, according to Leshabane.

"We can confirm at this stage that an accident happened...we don't want to speculate about any other thing," he told eNCA, when pushed on whether there were any suspicious circumstances around the crash. 

It has also been reported that Watson was due to appear at an inquiry related into his tax affairs.

However few days ago a top lawyer linked to CR17 campaign had reportedly died and it is believed his death has been kept under wraps.

“the founder of Edelstein Farber Grobler (EFG), Barry Eugene Farber, died last week in his sleep”.

It was also reported that EFG is the same law firm into whose Absa bank account Bosasa boss Gavin Watson is said to have deposited a R500 000 donation to CR17’s campaign.

EFG featured prominently in the Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s report following her investigations into the Bosasa donations.
