Zondo: Prosecute Gupta cash recipients

Johannesburg – Law enforcement agencies must investigate – and possibly prosecute – several high-profile people with links to the controversial Gupta family.

The State Capture Commission has recommended this in part two of its report.

It was handed to President Cyril Ramaphosa’s office on Tuesday.

The Zondo Commission report found that former Transnet CEO Brian Molefe and former Minister of Public Enterprises Malusi Gigaba are among the people that may have received cash payments during their visits to the Gupta compound between 2010 and 2018.

The report also revealed that Transnet was the primary site of State Capture in financial terms.

Contracts valued at over R41-billion were irregularly awarded to entities linked to the Gupta family. The Presidency has committed to sharing the contents of the report.

This is the second of three volumes.

The first volume was released at the start of January, and the third is expected later this month.

President Ramaphosa will submit the full report to Parliament by the end of June.
