Cape Town - Minister in the Presidency Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma is the latest Cabinet member to come clean on meetings with the Guptas.
“I attended official meetings with Ajay Gupta present when I was Minister of Foreign Affairs and he was a board member at Brand South Africa,” Dlamini-Zuma said.
“I was also invited and accepted an invitation to attend Diwali celebrations at the Gupta family home.”
Dlamini-Zuma was answering a parliamentary question from DA MP Shahid Esau, who wanted to know if she attended any meeting where Gupta family members, employees or close associates were present since she was appointed to the Cabinet.
Esau had also wanted to know if she was influenced by any person to take any official administrative action on behalf of any Guptas or their associates. “No, I have never been influenced, nor have I influenced an employee to take administrative action on behalf of the person(s) specified,” Dlamini-Zuma replied.
