Johannesburg - "We are marching to the Guptas home because it's the home of corruption." These were the words of DA leader Mmusi Maimane at the start of the party's march against state capture and corruption. 

Thursday's march comes a day after the unveiling of a monument to President Jacob Zuma at Groot Marico, where the opposition party had also staged a protest.

Gupta family earlier threatened lto obtain an urgent interdict to halt a planned march by the Democratic Alliance to the family's compound in Saxonwold.


DA supporters braved the rain to take part in the march, saying it was worth it as they want the family to leave.

"We're tired of them and we just want them to leave. Pack their backs and go back to India," Doris Mosii said.

Another protester lamented the fact that millions of South Africans remained unemployed while the family enriched itself.
 
In the end, only the DA's leadership marched to the home while most of the protesters remained behind. 

This allegedly due to the court granting the family its interdict.
