READ: The damning emails that prove ‘Guptas run SA’

Citizen Reporter

Zuma denied he had sought residency for himself and his family in the United Arab Emirates while the ministers and government officials implicated in the email evidence have yet to respond.

Ajay Gupta one of the Gupta brothers who left South Africa for United Arab Emirates following allegations of corruption.

After the Gupta family challenged The Sunday Times to expose the email evidence it had, the weekly has responded with a string of emails confirming the influential family have exercised control over the government, effectively running the country from their sprawling multimillion-rand Saxonwold compound.

The newspaper has revealed the series of email correspondences it used to expose President Jacob Zuma’s friends, the Gupta family for having paid for a flight for Des van Rooyen, chauffeured a Denel director in Dubai and approved Mosebenzi Zwane’s ministerial post a month before he was officially appointed.

While the family has denied this, issuing a statement through their lawyer Gert van der Merwe, emails obtained by the Sunday Times suggest otherwise. “Once the documents are studied and verified, my client will be in a position to comment if justified. The family denies any wrongdoing or paying any amounts to ministers or the president and reserve its rights,” the statement read.
