He says scandals are tearing the ANC and its alliance partners apart.

The Gupta family is uniting the country against the ANC, according to ANC veteran and millionaire businessman Tokyo Sexwale.

He was speaking during a briefing held at Trillian Capital Partners regarding corruption allegations at the Gupta-linked company he recently resigned from.

Trillian, according to a recent report, received millions in payment for work done for state utility Eskom without a contract or a tender.

This was in relation to an insurance claim at Eskom’s Duvha plant, which Trillian allegedly provided services to, including sourcing a new supplier and negotiating a settlement with the insurer.

Sexwale’s tone turned emotional as he described how the Gupta scandals were tearing the ANC and its alliance partners apart.

“This corruption, this particular one, is uniting South Africans against us as the ANC. This particular corruption, family related, is ruining relationships among families and friends who don’t talk to one another any more, where people never see eye to eye any more.”
