Former ministers must account for Gupta naturalisation, says Gigaba

Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba has told MPs that former ministers of his portfolio should also go to Parliament to account for the early naturalisation of the Guptas.   

Gigaba was in the National Council of Provinces yesterday to answer questions from MPs, along with two other peace and security ministers.

This come a day after the Portfolio Committee on Home Affairs agreed to finally hold a full inquiry into the process that led to members of the Gupta family receiving their passport and identity documents.

 

Zuma will have plenty support from ANC members when he appears in court

President Jacob Zuma can still expect support from ANC members when he appears in the KwaZulu-Natal High Court in Durban on corruption charges next week with some hinting that they would defy the national executive committee's decision to ban them from wearing party regalia.
 

Several party members declared they would remain ardent Zuma supporters, including provincial and regional leaders and members of the Umkhonto We Sizwe Military Veterans Association.

Another offshoot, calling themselves the "Radical Economic Transformation Champions", are urging South Africans not to ditch the man they dub the "father of radical economic transformation".



ANC and DA MPs agree that Muthambi 'must go to prison'

 

Former communications minister Faith Muthambi "must go to prison".

ANC MP Lerumo Kalako and DA MP Phumzile van Damme agreed on this, but not on whether the Portfolio Committee on Communications should have an inquiry about Muthambi's maligned tenure as communications minister.

Last year, Deputy Speaker Lechesa Tsenoli wrote to the committee to instruct them to hold an inquiry into allegations in a report by the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse, that Muthambi had sent confidential information from Cabinet meetings to Tony Gupta, as revealed in the Gupta Leaks.
