The investigation for which many think the Murrays were shot for, involved a company which was linked to the Gupta brothers. The Gupta brothers was accused of seeking political favours from high class individuals, government officials etc. for their business.
Cloete who was an investigator held a prestigious position as a liquidator for Bosasa company, the company was subsequently said to be involved in many government contract scams.
The Zondo commission confirms that Bosasa was involved in financial irregularities which involved government contracts. The Zondo commission was set up by the former president, Jacob Zuma in 2018 with the aim of looking out for frauds and corruptions within the public sector.
Also, the Bosasa company was a huge donor to the currently South African president, Cyril Ramaphosa’s campaign group. It was alleged that for this reason, the company has been receiving government contracts.
Ramaphosa came public to refute this claim and stated explicitly that further investigations will be carried out, and if the company was found to be corrupt, he would repay the $35,000 (£27,300) donations it got from the company. Ram
