Johannesburg -  ANC presidential hopeful Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma has denied reports that she has been involved in illicit financial activities with the Gupta family. 

This is after reports emerged that Dlamini-Zuma's name is part of a list, compiled by a UK law maker, of people that should be investigated for possible illegal financial activities. 

The Gupta family, President Jacob Zuma's wives and some of his children are allegedly also part of the list, TimesLive reported. 

Dlamini-Zuma said she has no links to any of the Gupta family's businesses. 

She said the only money she received, that is linked to the Gupta family, was the prize money she won after being named South African of the Year two years ago at an award show hosted by the family's New Age Newspaper. 

"Dlamini-Zuma wishes to reiterate her long standing position on the matter of illicit financial financial flows, which she spearheaded during her term of office at the African Union Commission," said Dlamini-Zuma in a statement on Friday. 

The president's children, Duduzane and Duduzile, are named on the list, along with two of his wives - Thobeka Madiba-Zuma and Bongi Ngema-Zuma. 

It emerged on Thursday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was investigating the Gupta family for possible illicit financial flows. UK authorities are also looking into the family's dealings and the possible involvement of banks such as Standard and Charted and HSBC. 

The Hawks have said they are willing to cooperate with the FBI's investigation.
