South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has blamed corrupt practices for the country’s economic problems. Since taking office earlier this year, he has been a man on a mission – determined to put a stop to “state capture”. Former president Jacob Zuma and his son’s close links to the Indian-born Gupta brothers – who bagged billions in contracts and business from state-owned enterprises – are at the centre of the saga. Today, the Guptas are no longer untouchable. Our correspondents report.

  1. I don’t know why Indians like crooking people, and governments. I dealt with them for over 20 years the time I was working for SARS. They are the biggest crooks. Others in Durban once asked me to help them making their R13 million VAT debt they had then they promised me a free BMW convertible which was R500k at that moment. I refused and advised them to pay their taxes. They look like the people who are doing well but they are full of fraud and tricks. South Africa must stop this and also check their businesses properly vs they higher standards of living with businesses which seems not to be doing well which contradicts their living standards.

  2. You need to qualify as corrupt before becoming a ANC member of parliament, they own the courts and reserve bank money. Half of India has invaded Natal without firing a shot. You think the Chinese are bad.

  3. Fuckers bled SA dry. They need to be extradited from the UAE and all their assets confiscated. Then spend the rest of their lives in a SA jail. That would make me really happy.

  4. Justice, how can one appreciate something that was never your own in the first place. If you can’t count then how much is enough, if you can then it’s never enough.

  5. how can you trust any ANC members or affiliates to head an inquiry regarding the Gupta corruption when half of their reshuffled cabinets are still benefiting from Gupta fruits?

  6. What justice will they face, just look at what’s happening with Jacob Zuma, he is so ill to appear in court, this is all a joke. Just Soweto have 52 billion ZAR outstanding with Eskom +++++ JOKE JOKE JOKE, who does the government think they fooling, maybe those on the ground level, even these citizens know it’s all bull.

  7. The guptas have stolen more since then. They owe 1.6 trillion Rand to the government. Also America stole 8000 gold bars from the South African reserve bank. And it was on a ship bound for China. The ship sank in mysterious circumstances and the next morning the U. S salvage craft shows up and claims the Gold. The U. S government seizes the gold and it now sits in the reserve bank of us treasury.

  8. The Gupta family did injustice to my fellow south African, if they even set foot on South African soil
    an immediate arrest needs to be executed.
    This one family caused havoc for all South African, we are currently
    paying an all time high for energy.

  9. Remember the Guptas are business ppl….they will hunt fertile ground..Why are we blaming them…or China or US etc….when the idiots in SA opened the door to them. We are to blame not them….Sadly our wonderful govt also saw opportunity and milked the system. They sold us out…..

  10. Black people never work hard and never make efforts to use their brain. Always use race card and blame others for their own failures ! Come on blacks, educate your kids, learn to save money and start your own business. Blacks, don’t blame others for your failures

  11. THIS IS ONLY SOUTH AFRICA…!!!!!
    THEY PROBABLY SKIPPED DUBAI BEFORE BEING EXPOSED SO AS NOT TO FURTHER THE ALREADY CHAOTIC TURMOIL THE MIDDLE EAST IS FACING NOW… HOW ABOUT OTHER COUNTRIES THAT THESE GUPTAS HAS CORRUPTED WITH THEIR TRILLION DOLLARS CORPORATION’S…ESPECIALLY COUNTRIES IN ASIA LIKE THAILAND, PHILIPPINES, MALAYSIA, INDONESIA AND NOT FORGETTING SINGAPORE… BELIEVES ME YOU WILL FIND TRAILS OF THESE GUPTAS EMPIRE’S AND CORRUPTION FOOTPRINTS…JUST OPEN YOUR EYES AND LOOK AROUND YOUR COUNTRY, WHO DO YOU FIND… YUP, INDIANS….????!!!

  12. HOW CAN JACOB ZUMA SELL THE POOR BLACK MASSS TO A BUNCH OF INDIAN THIEVES .WAS HE SO STUPID .
    DID HE NOT REMEMBER WHAT MANDALA WENT TO JAIL FOR .

  13. Cyril Ramaphosa is the most corrupt piece of crap. He is not committed to nothing except enrich himself like all African leaders do. They are there for nobody but themselves. Stop propping up these corrupt money grabbers as so virtuous and want to stop corruption. They are corruption!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. the battle is between the two groups of capitalist, the West is angry because Gupta from the West are eating on the same plate with them. The poor suffer the effects.

  15. It’s hilarious how south africans are defending the guptas such as the gupta interview video on yt. Meanwhile in America, the media went into meltdown because trump tried to payoff his past hookers for silence ahead of his election campaign. Just how low can a country sink. Just how low standards can a country conduct itself? Today I learnt, that yes, a war-free country can be a lot more worse 🙂 😀

  16. Never ever they will get charged. They laugh about all and all money is abroad long time ago. They just wait until storm set and then they pay their government buddies

  17. The white South Africa at 5:03 screaming go Guptas. Didn’t your ancestors kind of do the same thing. No disrespect as I don’t know him. On the other hand if they refuse to come back they will get away with everything. The UAE doesn’t understand the term extradition that’s just a slap in the face to all South Africans. Till now South Africa is being looted by foreigners and corrupt politicians . This country which arguably has the most natural resources and precious metals and can be considered one of the richest and is in a crisis state
