Johannesburg – The Presidency rejected claims that President Jacob Zuma recently visited the United Arab Emirates to drop off R6bn belonging to the Gupta family. Economic Freedom Front leader Julius Malema on Thursday said Zuma visited Dubai unofficially to "dump money" for the politically-connected Guptas.In a statement, the presidency on Saturday said the allegations were "preposterous and malicious"."Mr Malema's allegation has no basis in fact. President Zuma recently concluded successful visits to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to strengthen bilateral trade and economic relations between South Africa and the two countries respectively. "Mr Malema’s malicious allegations are both untruthful and defamatory. The Presidency reserves its rights in this regard."
