Johannesburg - The Black Business Council (BBC) has urged the democratically elected national executive on Thursday to navigate the country through the crisis of allegations that the Gupta family was influencing the appointments of certain cabinet ministers.

“These allegations come at the time where the country is facing an economic crisis whereby there is lacklustre growth, high inflation and risk of being downgraded by the rating agencies,” BBC chief executive, Mohale Rlebitso said.

Rlebitso said the BBC supported the call for a judicial commission of inquiry to remedy the situation with urgency, and arrest the threat that the Gupta allegations presented to the country's economic and political outlook.
