Cape Town - Oakbay Investments on Sunday hit back at a report claiming President Jacob Zuma directly phoned ex-GCIS CEO Themba Maseko to ensure he helped the Gupta brothers.

Oakbay Investments is the holding company for the Gupta family’s businesses in South Africa.

“We are bemused by Mr Maseko’s six-year-old allegations, which are totally unfounded. It is clearly part of an ongoing, coordinated campaign involving others, to continue an already vicious politically-driven attack, using the Gupta family as a proxy," said Oakbay CEO Nazeem Howa in a statement.
