President Jacob Zuma has been implicated in Guptagate, according to a sworn affidavit by a senior air force official published in Beeld on Thursday.

"On or about 17 April 2013, Mr [Bruce] Koloane phoned me and he informed me that he had returned from the president and that the president wanted to know 'if everything is still on track for the flight'," read an excerpt of the affidavit by Lieutenant Colonel Christine Anderson.

"I informed him [Koloane] that we were awaiting the overflight clearance and once this was received, we would be able to finalise the movements of the passengers."

Anderson also confirmed that Zuma was the "Number One", referred to in a report on Guptagate by the justice department.

"Number One is the President of the Republic of South Africa. For safety reasons we never refer to the president in phone conversations," said Anderson.
