CAPE TOWN- National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP) Shaun Abrahams says the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has a strong case against the Guptas and is still waiting on his prosecuting team to advise him on the Jacob Zuma 783 corruption chargers and others.

Speaking outside parliament on Thursday the day Cyril Ramaphosa was being elected president.

Abraham’s earlier this week the NPA had given prosecutors until the 23rd of February to provide him recommendations or whether or not to prosecute former president Jacob Zuma on the “spy tapes” case.

In January Zuma handed in his representation last minute on reasons why he should not be prosecuted.

“I’m waiting for the prosecuting team to advise me, to make their recommendations to me and I will then consider the matter,” he said.

Talking about the Gupta’s case and their associates,¬† Shaun Abraham’s said the current Estina farm case, he believd the NPA had a strong case against them.

“Well, of course, that’s why they have been taken to court. So I’m confident that justice will be seen to be done at the end of the day in all these respective matters,” Abrahams said.

“I think as a country we need to move forward and work together in unity,” he added.

“There’s a responsibility on each and every citizen of this country to work together as a collective to take this country forward. That responsibility lies on all our shoulders.”
