Johannesburg - The government has been rocked by allegations that the Guptas, a wealthy family with close ties to President Jacob Zuma, may have been behind his decision to sack respected Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene in December.
A growing list of people are now coming out with evidence that they were offered top cabinet posts by the Guptas.
But before Zuptagate, there were other scandals that plagued Zuma's political career over the years. In case you forgot, here’s a list:
* Zuma's former financial adviser, Schabir Shaik, was found guilty in 2005 of trying to solicit bribes worth R500 000 a year for Zuma from French arms company Thint. In return, Zuma was supposed to protect it from an investigation into an arms deal arranged by South Africa in the late 1990s.
* President Thabo Mbeki sacked Zuma as his deputy in 2005 after he was implicated in the arms deal. Zuma later ousted Mbeki to win leadership of the ANC.
