Misconduct: ANC branch to press charges against Atul Gupta

2013-05-17 00:00

BUSINESSMAN Atul Gupta will face disciplinary charges for misconduct and for embarrassing the ANC following the Waterkloof air force base debacle.

The leaders of his branch in Ward 117, Johannesburg, decided on Wednesday to press charges against him.

Branch secretary Tebogo Khaas has confirmed that the branch executive committee decided to go ahead with the charges. Gupta would be formally notified about them and about the date of the hearing as soon as the disciplinary committee has been appointed, he said.

Atul Gupta is the only one of the Gupta brothers whose membership of the branch is still in good standing.

Gupta’s spokesperson, Gary Naidoo, earlier said the businessman was unaware of any action against him, and was attending a wedding in India.
