Last week former ANC MP Vytjie Mentor went public saying the Guptas offered her a role as a SA minister, then Deputy Finance Minister Mcebisi Jonas said that he was also approached by the Gupta family. The matter wasn’t brought up at the ANC NEC over the weekend and today we have yet more allegations that the Guptas are influencing ministrial positions. Floyd Shivambu, the EFF deputy president, is claiming that Human Settlements Minister Lindiwe Sisulu has been moved out of the defence portfolio because she didn’t co-operate with the Gupta family.

“We can tell you for free that the reason Lindiwe Sisulu was shifted from defence ministry to public service and admin, is because the Guptas wants to have the tender to lease planes to defence for R106-billion.
“They have that tender now. She wanted to buy cheaper planes, but the Guptas said no, we will sell you a plane for R4-billion. And when she refused, they shifted her to public service and administration,” [eNCA]
Minister Sisulu has yet to comment on the allegations made by the EFF.
Now you know.
