Johannesburg - South Africans should be thankful for the investment the Gupta family is bringing to the country, businessman Atul Gupta said on Friday.

"There is so much you can see... hundreds of people are getting jobs, there is a boost to the tourism," he told the SABC.

The Gupta family is celebrating the wedding of Vega Gupta, 23, to Indian-born Aakash Jahajgarhia in Sun City, North West.

Atul Gupta is the chairperson of family-owned TNA media, which produces The New Age newspaper. The family also owns a large portion of Sahara Computers.

Gupta said he did not understand why there was a concern about the landing of an aircraft chartered by the family at Waterkloof Air Force Base on Tuesday.

"I don't know what they want.... The airplane had permission. No airplane in the world can land without permission."

Several government departments have denied giving clearance for the jet to land at the base.

The departments have launched separate investigations into the matter.
