The rich controversial Gupta family has been accused of capturing South Africa. Lots of leaked e-mails have revealed how the family has helped themselves to lots of irregular and questionable tenders through government parastatals.
Ekurhuleni Mayor and ANC NEC member Mzwandile Masina has lashed out at the Gupta family to leave the ANC alone.
Taking a swipe at President Zuma, the mayor said;
“Comrade President let’s ask the Guptas to give the ANC space to conduct the revolution.
“We don’t mean to choose friends for leaders of the ANC, but there’s a limit to everything. People died in the ANC and for this country we can’t surrender the sovereignty of the ANC,” he stated.
The Mayor delivered a short speech that was applauded by many ANC supporters.
The Mayor went on;
“It is un-ANC to sit and watch the ANC die in the hands of the Guptas,” he exclaimed.
Masina urged all organisations to sit down and talk through their issues, saying a few individuals could not be allowed to destroy the alliance and the ANC.
