Reports that President Jacob Zuma and his enormous government motorcade visited the Gupta home in Saxonwold have unleashed a torrent of criticism.
It was reported that Zuma’s 17-car blue-light motorcade shamelessly checked in at the compound in Saxonwold, north Johannesburg, on Friday night.
Journalist Justice Malala has speculated that the visit to the family was to report on how the ANC’s national executive committee meeting had gone.
Many concluded that the Gupta family may be upset that Eskom CFO Anoj Singh, who has strong links to them, has been suspended.
Although many users on Twitter were outraged at the news, some asked for proof of the motorcade, and found it suspicious that no photos or videos have allegedly been made available.
Former Gauteng premier Mbhazima Shilowa said he’d also noticed Zuma’s motorcade.
