Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba has been accused by many South Africans of being captured by the rich Gupta family.

But the minister has denied any form of involvement in state capture.

Gigaba was reacting to allegations in a report on state capture by the Public Affairs Research Institute (Pari) that he appointed people with Gupta-Zuma-aligned interests to the boards of state owned enterprises while he was public enterprises minister.

 

The report contains a timeline of changes to the boards of state owned enterprises by Gigaba between 2010 and 2012‚ when he was public enterprises minister‚ and alleges these appointments were part of the systemic reconfiguring of these boards to align certain interests.
