South Africa: Investigator of top corruption case shot dead

Europe News Desk!!! An accountant investigating high-level corruption cases in South Africa and his son were shot dead by unidentified gunmen. The BBC reported on Sunday that 50-year-old Cloette Murray was attacked by unknown assailants on Saturday while she was traveling in a car with her 28-year-old son Thomas in Johannesburg. His son died on the spot, while Murray was rushed to the hospital and later succumbed to his injuries. South African media reported that he was driving his white Toyota Prado towards his home in Pretoria. Murray, 50, was the liquidator of Bossasa, a company embroiled in several government contract scandals. He also served as liquidator for firms linked to the wealthy Gupta brothers, who deny allegations of bribery. The BBC reported that police said they would look into whether there was a connection between Murray’s murder and these corruption investigations. Murray’s job as a court-appointed company liquidator was to investigate the firms’ accounts. One of those companies was Bossasa, a government contractor specializing in prison services.
