Another minister admits 'I was invited to Guptas home' - report

2016-03-17 13:45
Johannesburg - Public Service and Administration Minister Ngoako Ramatlhodi has confirmed that he had also been invited to the Gupta family home, SABC reported on Thursday.

He was allegedly invited for dinner at the home and declined the invitation.

Further details were not immediately available.

Ramatlhodi was removed as Mineral Resources Minister by President Jacob Zuma in September last year.

He was replaced by ANC MP Mosebenzi Zwane, who was said to have ties to the Gupta family.
Ramatlhodi replaced Collins Chabane, who passed away in a car accident.

Zwane, who is said to be close to Free State premier Ace Magashule, was the ANC's provincial treasurer and a former agriculture MEC.

However, his term as a Free State MEC has been marred by controversies said to involve the Guptas.

Zwane also reportedly played a role in the private jet carrying guests for a Gupta wedding in Sun City, landing at Waterkloof Airforce Base in 2013.
