Tensions flared in Saxonwold, Johannesburg, where police were forced to fire stun grenades after members of the Black First Black Land (BFLF) clashed with anti-Zuma protesters outside the Gupta compound.

A group of  BFLF members gathered earlier in the day to defend President Jacob Zuma and and his recent cabinet reshuffle.

It's national spokesperson Zanele Lwana said white people had the audacity to take to the streets of South Africa and call for one family to leave the country.
"White people entered our country and enslaved our people. We must not allow them to divert our attention as black people." 

The Gupta family, who have close ties with President Zuma, has been at the centre of the state capture allegations after former deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas revealed that they had offered him a Cabinet post.
